Back to spring
The promise of bigger things: delphinium and parrot tulips
It's going to be a lot colder today. I'm kind of glad: instasummer was rather distracting. Also, cooler temperatures keep those spring blooms from fading.
I am actually a little relieved the weather has turned for the school's sheep's sake. (Try saying that fast.) Poor baa-baas, under their thick wool coats. I am not sure when they get sheared. Maybe when they go to their summer pasture? I'm going to have to find out. As it is, I was seriously looking at sheep-shearers for my horticultural trimmings...maybe they could serve double duty.
Factoid: did you know that sheep hoover up their water? I guess I thought they would be more like dogs and cats and lap up the wet stuff, but no. A much more dainty slurping is what they do.
