For the garden is the stage on which the gardener exults and agonizes out every crest and chasm of the heart.

Drought Daylilies


It's been very dry the past few weeks. The grass crackles as I walk down to the Growlery and perennial garden. Of course I water the perennials, but they are not fooled. They know it is not rainwater and they react in kind - they grow, they bloom, but it is controlled flowering, not the freewheeling there-is-no-tomorrow lushness they have with real rain.






And thank you to Tom Gahr for stopping in for the beer, garden and Growlery tour ("It looks a lot bigger in the photos".)
