inkdog the blue flower was a closeuip of a gertrude jekyll heritage delphinium.

othello-what a wonderful rose in description and picture but our relationship has been fraught. each year his freaks and follies are different. several years ago he was obdurate about not growing all summer. then he threw up a solitary cane which by the end of september was 12 feet tall with a single rose at the tip-a very pretty rose and it made everyone laugh who came into the garden, but still. this spring he seemed to have died over winter and my heart  rejoiced but when i arrived with the spade there was the most beautiful scarlet foliage. so, being a pusillanimous equivicator...... and my reward? a forest of six foot canes each witrh a single flower at the tip and for the first time ever-mildew. that's it. it's over. we are through, finished, done- he is out of here.

otherwise what a wonderful year. perhaps the best ever. the garden is a marvel, each morning and evening a fresh astonishment. i hope that all of you are having the same kind of joy but now i am getting that shovel and commiting rose-icide.
