I've seen so many ships sailing, just to head back out again and go off sinking...

Just back from a few days out of town and I could hardly wait to see what was going on.

The results are...decidedly mixed.

On the up side, a few calladium are rearing their heads. They don't look like much now, but just wait...

On the down side, the middle bed in the front yard is not as happy as I'd like. The linaria are curling up and dying, for reasons that are not entirely clear. The violets seem to thrive, but I expect by midsummer they may run their course. It may be time for a plan C here.*

The containers are all doing well. A neighbor has contributed some geranium and the pansies shown here. While I'm always a bit taken aback to find changes to the plan, I've decided these particular flowers are a good thing, especially given the confusion on the ground. Hey, look over here!

*I dread to say the "H" word (hosta).
