🎶 ‘The pump don’t work cuz the vandals took the handle’ 🎶

My columbines are getting expensive ❗️

Last year someone pulled my six saplings out of the ground, only three survived. This spring the landlord dropped a tree on two of the blooming plants.

Columbines

I replaced them this Spring with a mail order from a greenhouse in Utah. 💲

Hopefully I will have ‘pixies’ dancing in my garden again next year ❗️

 

Each bloom lasts 2 weeks + ❗️

Going on 2nd week of January

They are taking right off after New Year

28 December and 70° all week. Unusual for East Tennessee ❗️

So I wheeled out the dormant oxalias triangularis so it will be nice and full for St. Urho’s day 🍀

Full blown summer in E. Tennessee 🌞 only 78° last night with another high of 95° today. Am watering the Columbine & Cat Nip seedlings daily and the Canna Lilies are getting less & less morning dew. The afternoon ‘Pop- Up’ thunder storms are getting few and far between. The Canna’s are 8′ going on 10′, don’t think there will be any twelve footers this season 😎

The Purple Shamrocks sure like living on the front porch in the summer time.
