Some of my Flower Show pix are having technical difficulties, but here's three that uploaded OK. First, an amazing tub of amaryllis, grown from a single bulb. I'm happy if I get one flower stalk from a bulb. Imagine how ginormous this bulb must be.
Next, my prize purchase, some beautiful asparagus roots from Landreth Seed Company, shown with the Monkey sock. Usually one has to buy roots in quantities sufficient to stock an asparagus plantation, so I was really happy to get a small bundle at the bulk price. This variety should do well roundabout Exit 151.
The Monkey sock is turning out to be a bit of a trickster. Ordinarily I'd expect the stripes on the heel flap to be broader than on the leg and the stripes on the gusset to be narrower, but on this sock it's the other way round.
Finally, this whimsical jazz band is for Jessica. Today's her birthday! Do go wish her a happy one.
