Rosy Relaxation

Dutch Gardens delivered my replacement Ebb Tide rose on Friday. It looked much, much better than the one I received initially.

I stuck the rose in the ground right away and already, it is sending up shoots.

Apparently, it is also being guarded by a not-so killer rabbit. I was watching this bunny just a few minutes ago as he lounged and snoozed right next to the Ebb Tide and among the dahlia sprouts.

Note how his back leg is hanging over the metal edging...that is one relaxed rabbit.

More Photos...

I had a really nice email from author Jeff Gillman about the review of his book I posted here the other day. Jeff, thanks for writing and keep up the great work!

Now, without further ado, more garden photos taken yesterday:

Clematis (not sure what kind)

Echinacae 'Orange Meadowbrite'

Variegated Sweet Flag Iris

Sprekelia formosissima aka Aztec Lily

Isn't that Sprekelia cool? That thing went from bulb to bloom in about two weeks...spectacular!
