May 31, 2020 – Pentecost Sunday

I was out weeding early and monitoring the irrigation feeders.  The water runoff down the driveway is improved with the new manifold.  The overperforming bubblers at the new sweet pea and the purple and gold lantanas were dialed down. Barrel container petunias, calibrachoa and verbena are managing well even with reduced water.  I use water from the rain barrels to supplement the containers, especially the camellia and the new variety of ceanothus.

The lewisia in the Experimental Box is showing its blooms above a fleshy rosette, as promised.


I walked the gasoline powered weed whacker down the driveway and along the lower rock border at the bottom of the front slope garden.  I mowed the lawn and encouraged the grass in the bare patches along the rock border.  The fight is on against the Bermuda grass in those patches.

The fortnight lilies have exploded almost overnight.  I believe that they will bloom steadily through the summer.
