This is the second day in a row that it has been over 80 degrees outside. That's too hot for me to do anything but enjoy a leisurely brunch in the tulip garden.
I spent the rest of the morning in front of the TV sewing binding on a small quilt. It was nice to be watching shows that I am rarely able to, like Regis and Kelli. It took about two hours to sew the binding on. It feels good to have this UFO (unfinished object) done.
Now I am going back outside to water a few areas. It does not look like we will be getting any rain for a few days.
update: Oh, Dear. The Hot Pants tulips are blooming.
This is what they are supposed to look like:
I wonder if that little purple stripe gradually widens and the yellow disappears as they age? I don't think the Hot Pants are multi-flowered.
Hmmmmmmm..... do you think it's possible that these yellow multi-flowering tulips will turn into the tulips in this picture?
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
