All conversations were monitored by our parents. Who was calling. What they wanted. And, of course, our side of the conversation was overheard.
Ah, the good old days before texting!
I now race to a different ring. A ring of blooms. Every morning, I race outside to see the Peruvian scilla that is blooming in my garden. Every day is a new discovery. Every day there are more blooms in the ring. Just look!
I wonder how many rings of blooms tomorrow will bring! And how many days it will take for the blooms to reach the top!
Portuguese squill, Peruvian scilla, or scilla peruviana is hardy from zones 7 through 10. This is the first time it has bloomed since I planted it, three springs ago. I read that it hates being transplanted, and takes a while to bloom afterwards. I hope it is finally happy, and that it blooms again next year.
If it does, I'll be racing to see those gorgeous rings!
