This morning I repaired a severed artery spewing irrigation water under Grandmother Camellia, and replaced the bubbler with a compression drip.

Maida elegans gave me a spectacular show as I weeded the aptenia patch.  Strangely enough, the yellow daisy flowers blooms close up in the middle of the day.

I pruned back front garden butterfly bushes, relying on my information that they can take a substantial amount of pruning.  The yellow and black butterfly on the butterfly bushes was a nice ironic and artistic touch.  The raspberry fizz butterfly bush in the back border garden continues to bloom.

For a break I sit in the summer house and twine the sweet pea up the supports up to the covering.  Little by little, still waiting for the pink blooms.
