A Bit Behind

I seem to live in a time warp area where we are two weeks behind the surrounding areas. In town the azaleas are blooming (mine are just budding out) and the hosta have been coming up for a while now (I hunted and finally found some tips just poking through). I still don't have much blooming but things are starting to come along.

Lupine and Monarda. The lupine was given to me by a student last year. The monarda was a stow-away that never bloomed last year so I have no idea what color it will be. It certainly has multiplied. :-)

Spurge. This was given to Country Girl last year and she shared with me so I really didn't know what to expect.

Ox-eyed daisy, red monarda (both gifts from Country Girl last year) and delphinium.

We had a frost overnight so I've just started hardening off my seedlings in hopes of being able to plant later in the week sometime. So in the planting department it looks like we'll be a week or two early this year.


  1. Sorry you have to wait two extra weeks but glad to see your seedlings are on their way! Have fun planting!

  2. My garden seems to lag about 8 days behind other Austin gardeners like Pam/Digging and Zanthan Gardens - I like that term Time Warp - just what it feels like sometimes.

    Your monarda must be the same as mine, Apple - third season with no flowers. I hope we both find out what color it is this year!

  3. I am so glad to see you have green!!!
    I hope things are well for ya!!

  4. If the Monarda turns out to be purple, may I have some? You are my favorite sister....
