today's bouquet fun

Unidentified clematis, hydrangea, one violet,
a tree peony leaf, and, thrillingly,
my first astrantia.

money shot

'Caesar's Brother' iris, my beloved
tree peony's last bloom, wild rose.

time to look under the cabinet...

...and pull out the Pimm's. Perfect day for
a garden party. Plus Chelsea is this week.
But once these roses go, it's back
to all green in this shade garden, and I switch
back to beer.

don't hate it because it's beautiful

Yard-shrub bouquet of viburnum and lilac, both
with no scent, garnished with
roadside wildflowers that
smell very sweet!

The Desolation of Helplessness

Thy name is...the BP spill. I guess this is the
fucking Earth Day lesson I was hoping for last week.
[Careful what you wish for, etc, etc.]
I'm trying to find an organization that only washes birds and
cleans beaches and wetlands. Anybody know
any specific names yet? I can't believe it's just
the World Wildlife Fund, but I could be wrong.


This is a good year for my poorly old
gnarled flowering trees. Even I haven't
killed them yet!
