In more ways than pictured: a front blew through earlier this week and cooler, drier air has made it possible to work outside in the morning in relative comfort. I headed outside to capture pictures of the Perennial Morning Glory for this week's Three for Thursday post. The weather was so delightful that I brought the camera inside, grabbed my Tula and my gloves, and spent several happy hours playing in the dirt!
Although the temperature's up to 98, the humidity is still low and there's a light breeze. I know it would be foolish to expect this to last ... I'm sure there's still some Awful weather left. But I can't help hoping that maybe this year, it really is over with so soon! The Head Gardener is laughing at me (not with me) but she looked pretty happy out there this morning.
We're both delighted that the Perennial Morning Glory finally decided to bloom ... and we both love those little touches of fuchsia on the edges of the points of the "stars"!
I hope you'll join me in posting Three for Thursday, if not this week, then next! Pick 3 pictures of plants from your garden ... tell us about 3 books you've read that you want to share ... rant about 3 things that bug the heck out of you ... show us 3 pieces of garden art or 3 photos of egregious crimes against gardening ... have fun, be creative and leave me a comment when your post is up!
