Delphinium Days

The rain skimmed by us again. Still - hopefully I'll get time to take some more pictures soon because the garden is starting to florish and these early pictures don't quite do it justice. I have 2 small delphinium plants in my perennial garden and the lupine I purchased when it was nearly dead seems to be recovering and shooting up new leaves. The tomotas are starting to put on some serious height and weight and the mortality rate is low so far.

Now if only I had more time just to sit outside and enjoy it, it would be great. There might be a service berry joining the brood soon. I'm a bit worried about the foxglove - it seems to be a bit unhappy with a touch of mildew a it also seems a bit dry. I tried giving it a more generous watering this morning - tonight I'll have to look it up and see if I'm maltreating it. I'm unsure what to do about the digging squirrels who seem intent on digging up the small plants overhanging the edge of my pots. I'm not sure what they are after, but the plants are suffering. I've tucked them back in and added soil on top, but I can't think of what to do to protect them. I guess at least the rabbits haven't caused too much stress so far.

Anywho - must run.
