Hooray! My lillies are starting to bloom.
This is one of three which have been in my garden for 3+ years now - there's a yellow, an orange, and a red lily which I purchased as potted plants and then planted them in the flower beds. Originally I had 5-6 plants, but the rabbits (and the weed whacker) got a few of them.
The new bulbs are starting to shoot up - some of those lillies have buds on them and there's green shoots from what ever the other bulbs were. I can't believe I've forgotten what I planted -- lillies and dahlias for certain, but the rest of it will be a surprise to me.
Mark is leaving this afternoon for DC - so it'll be me and the dogs/cats for two nights. While I'm looking forward to it, I'm also a bit bummed that I can't go to DC with him. It's probably been 10 years since I was down there. Maybe next year.
Henry continues to have good days and bad days. When I think he's about to give up the ghost, he rebounds. Still, his back legs are shaky and he stumbles quite a bit, so I'm not sure how much longer he has. Mark and I have discussed it a bit and pretty much agree that we'll do what's best for him. It makes me sad, but he's had a wonderful 2 years with us. With that, I think I'm going to head downstairs and hang out with Hank until I have to leave to drop Mark off and go to work.
