We had a very cool spring and up until now, we have only had a few days where the temperature reached 80º or above. And then, it didn't stay at the high point very long. This is fine with me as I don't like hot weather. My garden is doing pretty good. I have one tomato plant (I hadn't planned to have even one, but when I saw how big it was at the store, I bought one. It was still too cold to plant it outside so I kept it inside for quite a while. I also have a rhubarb plant and a very small blue berry bush that has the most berries on it since planting. Enough for some muffins, maybe!
This is my calla lili, which I had planted when we first moved here 8 years ago. It lasted for 2 years and then didn't appear again until this year!!! I couldn't believe it when it came up! I hope it doesn't hibernate for 5-6 years again. The iris behind it hasn't bloomed yet. A friend gave it to me and it is supposed to bloom twice a year, so I hope it does, but maybe not this year.
Some of the flower seeds that I planted have actually sprouted! I didn't inherit my Dad's green thumb, but I do try.
I have been keeping busy getting ready for the display at the Cultural Center in Lincoln City that I told you about in my June 10 post. I have added a few more items. Here's one of them. I call it "Windows."
