Richard Daniel shares a striking late bloom–appropriately named!
‘Spacecoast Bold Scheme’ sent up “two flowers [yesterday] in honor of the fallen Twin Towers and the victims of September 11th.” ❤
He’s also been hard at work pulling foxglove, rose campion, and lobelia volunteers. His beds are much tidier than mine, that’s for sure!
I’m glad he spared a few–those blue blooms really pop this time of year!
My back is sore this morning from cutting down a Chamaecyparis that outgrew its spot. I feel a bit guilty because I loved the golden evergreen color, but I’m also excited about all the free space I opened up. I’m planning to put a Pinus strobus ‘Torulosa’ in its place. Although the Twisted White pine can get as big as the tree I just cut down, it should be easier to rein in with pruning.
That’s a beautiful DL… My Frankincense and Myrrh is also reblooming now. We live just east of Poughkeepsie, NY
I’ve had a lot of rebloom this year, too (a lot more than usual, that is), thanks to the early spring and high temps, I’ll wager.
