My garden held a happy surprise for me on my return from vacation this week. My 'Ellen Bosanquet' crinums had started blooming in my absence.
Normally, 'Ellen' blooming in June would not be a surprise, but I moved all the crinums this past winter, and I rather expected that they might sulk for a year before they gave me any blooms again. It just goes to prove once again you should never sell a crinum short!
On the other hand, I had some not so happy surprises in my garden as well. Namely, weeds, weeds, and, yes, more weeds! Some of them knee-high. How can they grow so fast? I've got my work cut out for me for many days to come.
Still, it's good to be back in the garden, weeds and all.
