Garden journal entry


April flowers
April 30, 2018. Mums bloom in fall, right? That's not only what my own experience tells me, but also what any gardening magazine or book says. Turns out that conventional wisdom does not apply to Texas mums – they bloom in both spring and fall. That's kind of cool.
For a season in which all manner of plants come into bloom, I haven't posted here much. To be sure, I've added plenty of pictures and observations to my plant portrait pages, but there didn't seem to be any one surprise or insight that warranted a journal post. So it's the lowly mum that breaks the dry spell. Speaking of which – we may need to turn on our timed sprinkler system soon: it's getting hot in Houston, and without rain in the past week, rather dry.
