This is a third-year seedling. I'm hopeful of the 2nd year seedlings blooming this year too before cold weather. They rarely show new growth from the roots until mid May just as I'm giving up.
In the same bed, there's a new bud on Agapanthus (the bright bud at upper right) and a spent bloom on the far bottom left has seeds turning yellow. I have seedling Agapanthus that I think will remain in a pot until next spring. When these seeds are ripe, they need planting too.
White Shrimp Plant bracts finally are showing tiny pink
Plants are getting crispy. We are hoping for rain the next day or two. Farmer Danny is watering peanuts now. While I was putting a soaker in the bed above, I found a snake skin about 2 feet long. Startling. I hope he finds rats to eat.
