Bloom Day—are you kidding?
Seriously, the place is a hellhole. Roof grit and dust everywhere, plywood everywhere, 2 x4s everywhere, ladders everywhere, tarp everywhere. I could go on but won’t depress you. Nonetheless, I went out there with my camera—one thing, it’s quite warm, mid-50s—and got a few snappies. Most are over at Garden Rant (or will be as of 11/15), but at top you see what I suppose should be the last rose of summer (David Austin, Charlotte), though never say never. I also am getting some nice action from my houseplants. Cyclamens seem to be foolproof rebloomers; I’ve had one pink one for nine years. This is a newer red one. Lots of growth on the paperwhites—maybe I'll have some for next GBBD.
