Garden Notes, August 5

August 5th, 2003

Pictures: today’s garden picture. This is Cuphea purpurea, or so the label said. The flowers are not as orange as they look on my monitor – really much more of a true red – and they are only about an inch and a half long.

Weather: a bit of rain this morning, but not enough to do much good. I’ll probably have to start watering the containers again tomorrow if we don’t get rain tonight.

Birds: the hummingbird was in the back yard around 5:25 this afternoon. Didn’t stay long today (because I was outside?)
