Three exciting things happened today.
While weeding at a huge estate in South Woodstock, we came upon some showy orchis, Orchis spectabilis, which the former groundskeeper had transplanted from a pasture and they were spreading!
All my clematis made it over the winter: General Sikorski, The President, C. jackmani, Jackmani Superba, Bonanza, Ramona and Niobe. I guess it's not too late for them to go bad.
Seeds I planted which were crosses of the two daylilies, Tuscawilla Tigress and Alabama Jubilee came up.
Also my lilacs seem like they'll be a good stage for my tea on Sunday afternoon.
