Gardening in the Pacific Northwest (Vancouver, Washington)
This is a half-hearted attempt as a bloom day post. Today is a blustery, wet and stormy day as we await the approach of a major storm approaching the Pacific NW. There was a tornado on the coast of Oregon yesterday. We have just had lots of wind and rain. It is a good day to stay inside and put on a pot of soup which I plan to do!
As soon as the weather clears up, I plan to clean out the vegetable garden, finish trimming the laurel hedge and continue planting new plants in the garden. All of the blooming flowers still look great. I was surprised and excited to see the delphinium bloom again.
Sumac 'Tiger Eyes', Salvia chiapensis and delphinium.
It took a long time for the marigolds to take off but once they did, they have showed no signs of stopping.
