Garden journal entry


Colchicum 'Waterlily'
September 05, 2004. Today all of a sudden it was dreary and cool - and it felt decidedly like fall. No doubt summer's heat will revisit and today will be temporarily forgotten - but another harbinger of autumn is here to stay: the first colchicum is blooming. These showy flowers arise from a large bulb - its leaves emerge in spring, and fade by summer, so that the solitary flowers always come as a surprise. Also today, I finally made my annual trek, Max and Ben in tow, to Point Phillip Perennials, and returned, as always, with a wonderful haul of perennials and some shrubs; most will be new to our garden, a few are replacements of old favorites that we'd lost along the way.
