Too Busy

“Too Busy”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

The last two weeks, my job has been very hectic. I barely have time to check on the garden because I have been getting home so late. I can hardly wait for the beginning of June and vacation. Even though I haven’t been able to get out very much in the garden, the garden has been carrying on fine without me. More daylilies have started blooming, and even more have buds forming.

The yellow unknown ones that my mother gave me are really blooming now.



Misty Mayhaw is a reliable repeat blooming daylily. The sturdy stalks and flowers have really stood up to the rain showers we have been having lately.



Eye yi eye is another daylily that has just started blooming. This year the color seems a little different. More pink than orange. It is strange how flower color can gradually change over the years.



I think things are starting to get back to normal with the job. I sure hope so because I want to be able to enjoy the garden with all the new flowers opening up every day. I have been so busy lately, I even missed Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day, the first time in years. Less than two weeks and vacation time, which means I’ll have time to putter around in the garden. My idea of relaxation.

    I totally understand what you’re saying, Jan! I’ve had no time to speak of to get my garden cleaned up and looking presentable! And with all the rain, no seed planting either. My job has been pretty demanding, but after this week, I’ll get a couple of weeks off before it starts up again. I plan to make good use of those days and I hope the sun shines every single one of them!

    Enjoy your time off, too! Your daylilies are beautiful!

    I’ve found gardens can be very patient when we have no time for them.

    Hi Jan, it’s great to have plants that can do so well without much intervention from us…and lilies certainly are some of those plants! Yours look lovely;-) It is interesting when flowers begin to change color like that–must be something in its DNA. Hang in there with your job, it sounds like in no time you’ll be foot loose and fancy free for a while;-) Enjoy your break when it finally arrives!
