We grilled extra so it could be sliced and used for a salad Tuesday night (nail day--I have to plan ahead because I can't do anything for two hours while the color cures--hey, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)
The new daylily blooming is Black-eyed Stella.
I like this one, though the eye is far from black—more like light brown. It's all coming together in this area and I could not be more pleased...well, that's not true...I would be more pleased if crocosmia 'chopsticks' had not disappeared. I am very saddened that it seems to have died out despite the mild winter we had.
Here I am standing behind these daylilies, looking toward the rockwall.
This is Azure allium. I planted a few bulbs last fall. It's a nice true blue color, though quite tiny.
See how small it is?
Remember the Hairy Allium from last year?
It's also tiny, but I have them both right at the edge of the path so I can enjoy them as I walk along.
I had a very productive weekend despite the cold rainy weather. It was really perfect weather to do hard garden labor, though the deck took a beating with the muddy shoes.
I wish the weekend was just beginning!
