“Unexpected”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
This weekend has not turned out like I expected. We were told to expect showers, and none appeared. I thought with the slightly cooler temperatures I would be able to work in the garden, but Friday I woke up with a terrible sore throat, and by Saturday felt worse. I think my body is telling me to slow down, so that is what I am doing this weekend. All I did yesterday was put out the sprinkler on the flower beds so the plants could get a good soaking and rest. Today, looks like the same activities for me.
I did manage to take a photo of another flower that has opened. The Rose Passion daylilies are just starting to bloom.
I took this photo very early in the morning, so I don’t think it is fully open which may be why it looks lopsided. These daylilies and a few others with buds are just starting to bloom as the ones I have shown earlier in the month are finished blooming. I didn’t plan it this way. Though I have tried to have something in bloom just about all year, the daylilies blooming in succession is pure luck. It seems every now and then Mother Nature gives you a break and things work out without your having a hand in it.
