there are hussies and then there are hussies
this is the promised peggy martin.
one. rose. and. all. of. this. oohandaah.
and to think that i had called madame alfred carriére a hussy. peggy martin gets afternoon shade and still does this. oh, and she wasn't in full bloom yet when i shot this yesterday.
maggie and madame isaac periere
the garden is really hitting its stride this spring. i lost three trees (meiwa kumquat, meyer lemon tree, and an olive) with the deep freezes this winter, yet didn't lose one bougainvillea or the palm. the nightblooming jasmine even came back. crazy.
i have so much to do this weekend, but hope to get a peach and plum tree planted. also, take some more photos of the kitchen gardens. we already have baby tomatoes and need to mulch the potager again.
