Over in the middle are the best flowers right now. We're kind of looking through the top of a Crape Myrtle at a row of Daylilies not yet in bloom and Poppies and Purple Conflower in the island formerly known as the Rock Wall Bed before I took away part of the wall. You can't really see Lantana and Salvia farinacea and those tiny blue wildflowers from here.
Corn Poppies are just starting to bloom.
You can see part of the stones still holding the berm in place.
California Poppies and Salvia farinacea 'Victoria'
Corn Poppies follow the early P. somniferum.
Notice Venus's Looking Glass's tiny blue blooms at bottom.
High in the air, you notice things that you didn't see at ground level.
I spent the morning hacking at Virginia Creeper vines climbing the pines along with Catbrier. He-Who-Mows came to help and hauled away a truck load of vines and tree seedlings and azalea bits.
Come July when Gardenias have finished blooming, they will get a big haircut, too. They have tiny buds, promise of a fragrant June.
The weather is perfect for yard work.
I dragged out all my hoses and matched them up with various water outlets. We need two more standpipes and will get supplies we lack for those soon so that one outlet can supply more than one hose. I intend to drag fewer hoses this year with better planning for placement at the outset.
