Flowers

Because of our very late spring and then going directly into summer, all the spring flowers are in fast forward this year.  One morning they are just peaking above the ground and suddenly they have flowered and are finished.

I mentioned before that my lilies came back even though I pulled them last year because they were being eaten so badly that they were not even going to bloom.  I was surprised to see them up, but not surprised that the Red Lily bugs have found them again.  So far, nowhere near as many as we’ve had other years though.  In the last week, I have killed about 10-12 of them and I used to get that many every time I was out there last year.

I still had some more Nicotiana to plant, but the Forget-Me-Not will have to die back to give me room for them.

    1. I’m just glad the sprig flowers even came up this year. We went right from winter to summer. Two weeks ago I had the heat on in the house and in the same week, I turned the air conditioner on. Normally I go for 6 – 8 weeks without using either the heat or the air conditioner.
