I came straight home from fiddle group this afternoon, and headed to the back garden. It was a perfect gardening day. The sun was shining, the air was warm and there was nary a breath of wind. Now that is unusual for the Canadian prairies!
I spent several hours constructing bamboo teepees for various vines, most of which have not been planted outdoors yet. At right, is a picture of me digging in a new part of my flower garden. Most days, you will find me wearing these ancient overalls which have weathered about 15 gardening seasons. Two of the bamboo teepees can also be seen behind me in this picture.
The Primroses, pictured at right, weather combined with the rain of yesterday are looking gorgeous and enjoying the cooler day. Tonight and tomorrow we have more rain in the forecast. I am skeptical of this, since rain was forecast for all of today.
When I took a break from digging, I took the time to enjoy the movement of the Anemones (at left) as their faces turned to follow the sun.
