competing for attention…

the lily, clematis and fuchsias are a tangled display. A large birch tree blocks much of the afternoon sunshine, so the plants reach and seek the light. Consequently, there is quite the mess. I have given up sorting or pruning back to make some orderly sense of it all. Like life sometimes.

taking chances…

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe…It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Anticipation…

“It is said there are flowers that bloom only once in a hundred years. Why should there not be some that bloom once in a thousand, in ten thousand years? Perhaps we never know about them simply because this “once in a thousand years” has come today.”

Yevgeny Zamyatin, We 1924

I  think Yevgeny missed the point of gardening in the anti-utopian classic. Gardeners seek more immediate gratification for their efforts.

Lillies Bursting…

A kind offering from a visitor last year…after the single stem had produced a single flower I stuck it in the ground and forgot it. This year, it came back and is bursting forth. I had never really studied up on the Lilly and now learn they spread via tubers. This plant now has a half dozen stems at least popping up from the original single stem.
