I have to be, because my camera is broken, again, with the same disk-error problem it developed last year during our UP vacation.
This means that there is a new camera in my future (one that is not a Canon PowerShot A80, in case you're wondering).
But in the meantime, I'll tell you about my perennial garden, the one I began from scratch last spring. My nigra hollyhocks, a velvety purple-black, are blooming profusely; I have a mauve foxglove with multiple flower stalks; my purple hourglass flowers have been blooming to beat the band, as have my pinks and volunteer "Jolly Joker" violas, with their surprising plum-and-orange two-tone petals; a beautiful purple Japanese iris just opened yesterday. I can see now where I made some poor choices in positioning certain plants -- a lavender aster is trying valiantly to squeeze into the light between a sprawling butterfly bush and a coneflower -- but moving stuff around is part of the gardening game, isn't it.
Can't wait to get a new camera, though, so you can actually see all of this.
