So guess what. Judy and I are going to New York City for a few days and I have to get ready, so this will be a short post.
But I will say that our ‘Conca d’Or’ lilies are blooming, which is nice.
Conca d’Or are Orienpets, a hybrid of Oriental and Trumpet lilies. They are tall and very fragrant.
Most of them are in the Sidewalk Border, growing up through the ‘Raspberry Wine’ Monarda.
There’s also one left here in the Driveway Border, though there used to be three. You can see the ‘Eye-yi-yi’ Daylilies and the Winecups (Calirhoe bushii) are still blooming, and the Yellow Coneflowers (Ratibida pinnata) are getting started.
I’ll close with another of Judy’s Chickadee videos. Here we can see the fledglings are a lot bigger and are very insistent about being fed. Enjoy.
I’m planning to mostly ignore the blog while we’re gone, but I may post a photo or two. This is the first trip we’ve taken in a couple of years, so I am both anxious and excited.
Until next time, be well!
