My favorite amaryllis had two stalks of five and four blooms, one stalk following the other, which gave a longer period of bloom. A heavy rainstorm threatened to damage the first stalk, but I devised a way to protect it with an umbrella for a couple of days.
The caladiums Mark and I planted the last day of April are looking promising, and I have added some bedding plants and even some lettuce seeds.
My back porch roof has had a pesky leak for several years. The roofers finally came to fix it. They had to replace the roof all the way to the studs over this part of the porch. So glad to get this done before the extremely hot weather gets here, mainly because it's even hotter on the roof than in the yard. I have so much shade that the grass struggles, but I'm happy to have those tall pines.
I have one scrawny blueberry bush, but it produces enough for me to have a little bowlful occasionally when I can get to the ripe ones before the mockingbirds do. My next-door neighbor has a huge bush that hangs over my fence, so I consider these mine, too.
