|"Lollipop" Asiatic lilies blooming now|
|"Double Delight Cream" Nasturtiums|
While Nasturtiums can be direct seeded in the ground, they reach bedding plant size much faster if started earlier indoors. My direct-seeded ones are still inconspicuously tiny. On the other hand, my volunteer Eschscholzia have already flowered and set seed. The direct seeded cosmos have not flowered yet, though.
|Papaver rhoeas annual poppies started blooming last week|
It is just starting to rain this evening, which should help to reduce the forest fire smoke that has filled our skies and noses for the past week.
