Day Lilys are looking terrific.
The ‘Lions Club’ usually run a raffle as well as providing the ‘Open Garden’ catering, I supply the prizes and have managed to get the two Tub-O-Worms, two Compost Mates, a Water Fork, five litres of Natrakelp, 10 bales of Sugar Cane Mulch, Magnum of local wine and a Bromeliad as prizes. Well it's the Wednesday prior to opening and we are having a severe storm with high winds and hail. We can hear and see the hailstones landing, I am tempted to go out and catch them before they damage the plants, but with an acre of ground it's too silly for words.
Inspected the garden debris and leaf litter every where but no real damage. Thursday and gale winds all day really rocking and rolling the garden. Friday, winds have eased and the weekend is looking fine. I will be honest and say I will be glad when it's all over, it's just so much work especially when the weather is against you. Still it could be worse and rain all wekend as does happen sometimes. That would be tragic. Lets see what Saturday brings.
