Because we moved into the house in August and I almost immediately left for 4 weeks in the Azores I don’t really remember what the garden looked like in late summer. I verdant and lush… I think. I don’t really remember. This summer has been all about trying to tame the lushness and finding out what all these plants are, what are weeds are what are flowers I want to keep. I can now report that what I was hoping were Iris’ are in fact orange pokey thingies.
I know you’re amazed by my mastery of plant names. I think they’re going to “bloom” a bit more. I can see the bottom bits opening up and I hope the rest of it does too. Does anyone know what they’re called?
My veggies are doing really well. The potatoes are growing like mad and the peas are getting taller. I think I’m going to have to get longer stick thingies for them to grow up. Again bow down to my knowledge of all things green, flowery and garden related. I think I’ll walk up to a garden center person and ask him for a stick thingy for my peas to grow on. I’m sure he’ll know exactly what I’m talking about and more importantly be amazed by my gardening brilliance.
