Today was a beautiful gardening day (too bad we were up a bit late last night at a neighbor’s party). We’re cleaning up and clearing away pots and other things and we got a lot done. I also planted the bulbs that seemed in most urgent need of planting: the lilies and the eremus. The tulips and hyacinths (all being forced) are tough; they can wait a bit more. I had never seen an eremus “bulb” (more a root). Ew!
But that’s NOTHING compared to this grotesquely-shaped sweet potato vine tuber I found while pulling them all out of the containers. Now, tell me, what does this remind you of?
It seemed a shame to pull all the still-thriving annuals out of the pots, but with roofers coming they'd just be a target, so we have to put the pots away. It would have to be done soon enough anyway.
