One of the three great blue lobelia (a native, not the annual blue lobelia) is blooming in the rain garden. There are also three cardinal flowers (a red lobelia) , and i suspect soon all will be in bloom along with the rose mallows.
Passionfruit has its first bloom.
Tuesday i watched a hummingbird in the back yard eventually wander over to the scarlet runner beans. Those plants are a little thin: i imagine they will do better next year. I am tempted to apply fertilizer. When i finally need to water, i suppose i might. (So far we've had plenty of rain.)
Blackberries are about all ripened and picked. I nibble on them when i go into the kitchen. The berries were massive and tasty. Next year i assume there will be many more, as i look at the thick tall canes growing this year. There may be another flush of berries in the fall from the two primocane bearing plants — a selection for a plant that not only blooms on last year’s growth but also puts forth new grown and blooms on it in the same year.
Blue berries may be ripening soon.... woo-hoo! Two ripe Wednesday! I think there may be enough ripening all at once that i can do more than nibble.
I listened to Christine's fourth chapter in
There’s a stack of things continuing to go on that distress me.
