What a Difference a Day Makes!

on April 13, 2013

I was not home much this week, since we are in the middle of UIL Concert and Sightreading season. I spent 2 days at our middle school contest, playing the piano for our 2 choirs plus 4 others, then drove to Houston after the 2nd day, spent the night, and judged a contest the next. I try to walk around my garden and visit my plants every day, but I didn’t get to spend much Time out there. However, after I had been gone a full day and almost 3 inches of rain fell, I could really tell a difference!

English dogwood (mock orange) had exploded.

Sugar snap peas and Little Marvel peas grew tall and started blooming.

Louisiana iris began blooming.

My potatoes grew way too tall! I’m out of dirt to hill up around them.


And the big news of the day– Hardy gladioli were barely budded out last time I saw them, then I came home to this:
