These border lilies that I bought at Home Depot a few years ago are my absolute favorite thing in the garden at the moment.
Since I’m sick (again!) and can’t go far today it’s so nice to have them by the front door where I can sit inside on the stairs in my bathrobe and admire them out the window without scaring the neighbors.
I can also sit inside my “safe zone” and admire my gorgeous GREEN (!) front lawn which has now fully recovered:
Yesterday I noticed the freesia bulbs I planted in the big tub and the small rusty drums are finally sprouting (woo!):
I’m curious to see how they’ll do since it’s my first time growing them.
I’m also curious about these wildflowers that are growing super tall, super fast and are not flowering over by the benches. They really stand out against the ones that are flowering and I swear they grow nearly a foot a day:
They are really annoying me so I’ve been pulling them up since they apparently won’t bloom. I am happy with the other stuff in there, it’s all coming in nicely and looks and smells great. The butterflies definitely love it and I’m sure the hummingbirds, too, I just haven’t seen any of them.
That reminds me, I have two new hummingbird feeders I bought last winter that I need to break out and fill. I’m probably going to hang them right outside the bay window since I’ll most likely be inside more than out again this year, unless my mast cells miraculously decide to behave themselves.
That’s highly unlikely at the rate I’m going but oh, well. At least the view is lovely.
