Raindrops on Roses
It began to rain last night in the early morning. I heard it during a bladder call. It was still raining when I got up hours later. It was a gentle rain, and the sky was still gray for awhile after I got up. Now it is early afternoon and the sun is out. The sky is bright blue with fluffy white clouds.
Since he sun had come out, I decided to put my little seedlings I bought about three weeks ago out into the sun. I had put them into the rain when I got up and the sky was gray, but now that the sun was out the shadow of the roof was covering them. They need to grow in the ground, but my bad knee has made it impossible for me to put them there yet.
From right top clockwise they are thyme, parsley, catnip, chard, and lettuce. As you can see, something has already been eating them. So I'm bringing them in at night and leaving them out during the day. I started putting them in one of the weedy pots to confuse the bugs, but I put them on top of one today so that the bottom of the box would dry out before I bring it in tonight.
I also wanted to photograph the rain-kissed roses. When I did, I discovered two things I hadn't realized. My roses seem to be sick. The petals are lined in brown on most of them. The other thing I noticed was that there are little dragon fly shaped insects flying all around where my rosemary and one of the rose bushes meet. I've never seen this bug before and have no idea what it is. It was moving so fast I couldn't even get a good look, let alone take a picture.
How does your garden grow? Or do you have one yet? Do you grow anything inside or outside?
