I indulged in a bit of gardening this morning. Well, I watered a bit.
Not sure if anything really needed watering except the containers, but I have full rain barrels so what the heck.
The Camassia are just about done. This has been a very reliable bulb for me, although it took a couple years to really get going. Considering that it's edible (at least to humans; though not very tasty), I am surprised the possums and raccoons have not tried to dig it up for themselves the way they do everything else whether it is edible or not (except the daffodils).
Those are all different flowers on the same plant, btw. And my favorite Pacific coast iris hybrid is blooming too--very prolifically. I know someone somewhere told me they thought this flower was awful. Was it one of you? Maybe it was someone in my family. Obviously, I do not care.
The colors make a totally unplanned but harmonious match with Stipa arundinacea and Phormium 'Black Adder', although I don't have a picture to show that.
Also blooming: Cow parsnip (Heracleum lanatum), a vigorous re-sower I grow for the foliage as much as the flowers. Here, however, the foliage is all my beloved tree fern.
Cestrum elegans, the best cestrum for part sun of the three I have trialed in my garden (others were C. auranticum, and C. nocturnum). This one flowers almost year round. Scentless, unfortunately.
And the native perennial bunch grasses are all blooming, such as they are. The birdbath needs to be moved. Sigh. And I just got it standing straight up again.
