Two flats of impatiens to be planted before the party.
Need to keep the young gainfully employed and off the street.
Many happy hours spent watering.
Today, I went up to Union Square and saw lots of fancy nasturtiums all ready to eat. (Lisa Hermanson always recommends photographing stuff through plastic). We used to eat nasturtiums in the old centrury. The long poiny bit contains stuff almost as sweet as honey.
Pea sprouts (through plastic!)
Serried ranks of asparagus standing to attention like those buried Chinese warriors. It is asparagas season
and peony season (possibly my favorite flower ever --so showy, so blowsy, so fragrant so debutate ball summery).
Here stuff you can take home to make your own garden (if you have a garden, that is.)
I asked if I could take a picture of the Flowering Sage, and the young man offered to turn the tub round so the price wasn't in the picture, but I said, no no --it's lovely as it is.
