Six of the 32 buds so far spotted this season are in bloom. Here are two of them up front, one visible behind stems off on the left: Update! Swapped out for better photos freshly snapped Sunday morning. The open bloom count is now 10!:
Four buds are visible in this shot. Imagine what it will look like if all of them pop at once! I can't wait.
Once I get hold of the good camera, or successfully recharge the second-best camera, I shall assault you with even more pictures that are of course less about pictures of flowers and more about Bragging.
Background on this particular element of my garden goes back to 2007. When these things went in, even Shane thought nothing much would come of them. But I am my Mother's child. Dirt? I fuckin OWN you.
