They’re Baaaacck!

Standard

  
My first tigridia of 2015! Just the one so far.

Interesting to see that the first bloomer is one of my grown-from seed last year. They didn’t bloom last year, they were too young still. These are in pretty terrible recycled buckets and out the back of the house, where the sun probably lasts a bit longer. All my older plants are in proper ceramic pots and out front – and the house faces mostly west. Hmm.

I went back in time (did you hear the “woosh?”) and found that last year, my first post about tigridia was on July 26, 2013 – and last year I started bombarding you with pics on July 17! Very much proves how our wet and dark and windy ‘summer’ has delayed plant growth.

Well, they are here finally. And I’ll enjoy every bloom for the single day I get to see it!
