Hello everyone; yes, once again it is I, Chess the purebred border collie, filling in for the guy I live with, and here to make a quick post before our internet goes out again. You may remember me from such posts as “While We Were Away”, which was also about having no internet, and being rather spoiled by such a technological marvel.
Here I am in a characteristic pose. I’m thinking about not having any internet, of course. Not much has been happening here, except for my “picky eating”, which the guy I live with has had to deal with, but the weather has been nice, and so have my walks, so I don’t see why he’s complaining.
There are crocuses blooming. I think I already showed Crocus hadriaticus var. lilacinus, but why not show it again?And Crocus kotschyanus HKEP 9317 (collectors’ numbers).Colchicum ‘Violet Queen’. I think.Aster novae-angliae ‘Chilly Winds’. A nice white one. We’re pretending no one has changed the name of North American asters to something horrible. This plant came from Seneca Hill Perennials, alas, no more, as they say across the Atlantic.
We don’t grow the novi-belgii types since they get covered with gross mildew. Aster oblongifolius ‘October Skies’.Aster ericoides ‘Pink Cloud’. It fell over, but is covered with honeybees. And the cowpen daisy, Verbesina encelioides. An annual. Slight chocolate smell to the flowers. Well, I guess that’s it. Just wanted to show some flowers blooming here, before our internet goes out again.
Until next time, then.
