Terrace gardening

The last, recalcitrant garlics have sprouted and are lagging 6" behind the rest. I have planted summer savoury seedlings in the gaps, so this bath should be full of bees in a few months.

The first rose party on the terrace was held on May 23rd, 2007. That's a bit sobering. Why? Because the roses are opening now, a mere month ahead of schedule. If summer is coming early does that mean that fall will, too? I hope so.

Yesterday a parcel arrived from Brent and Becky's. A replacement Begonia grandis and two replacement Lilium superbum. So all is well in bulb world, and I thank them.


  1. Beautiful rose! And I like seeing some veggies as well! Happy Earth Day!

  2. such a lovely rose.
    but if Fall comes early doesn't that mean Winter will then too?
    Last year I had a dream that I fell asleep during Spring and Summer and woke up in October. I was so relieved when I realized it was just a dream & it was still Spring!

  3. the view from your terrace is just breathtaking! your blog is very inspiring!

  4. Thanks Thomas, belatedly!

    Lily Hydrangea - hmmm, yes, I suppose. But you know I wouldn't find falling asleep and finding summer was over :-) At least here in the Hot and Humid...

    Anonymous - it is a lucky view, and I enjoy it very much. The again, New York has some serious views...and thank you.
