A couple of days before the storm, 'Will's Wonderful' finally flowered. The latest of all the hardy chrysanthemums I've known. The Korean mums had been in full flower for at least 2 weeks.
An hour later. Gratefully, our intrepid garden helper will arrive to dig us out soon.
Things have changed significantly. When the sun comes out in a little while it will be pretty...but this is 8+ inches of unwelcome heavy, icy mix from this nor'easter.
I don't think it's going to be 7-10 weeks before this cybister amaryllis opens!
Sunset, last Tuesday. It's not uncommon for me to feel unwell with some chronic stuff I deal with, but I rarely get as sick as I was Sunday-Wednesday requiring a visit to the ER, etc. Gratefully, it's only a non life threatening infection that will eventually succumb to all the antibiotics that are in me right now. But it has been really really strange to feel too sick to to keep my eyes open for more than a few seconds let alone enjoy my favorite time of day, scrolling through to see all your wonderful posts. But when I saw this light filling our windows Tuesday evening I had to get up and out in it. And because things are even better today I'm happy to be back, seeing your posts and showing you the sky that pulled me up.
The lindera is spectacular this year
