Good Friday, April 10, 2020

It rained overnight, and this morning the ground was soft and wet as I went to trim rockrose for Spots.  The shrub rockroses in the front slope garden have lots of new growth, even when I avoid buds. More pink and white geraniums are making their appearance. The pink, royal blue and scarlet salvias are in full bloom – they seem to respond well to aggressive pruning.

I was recording Easter music at the church this morning. Myself singing from the piano and three other singers spaced six feet apart.  I stopped at the circle garden to clear weeds as I came in.  The cistus was a surprise and delight.  It did not bloom last year and has its first full white bloom with a yellow center.  Hopefully with dead heading it can greet me with white blooms throughout the summer.
