Hummingbirds, Lilies and Dead Vegetables

I was gifted to pots of Lilies of Cana, and they have bloomed gloriously Ruby Red, the very color of July.  Two hummingbirds twitter and fly around them.  I will try to get a photo, and will up load photos of  the lilies later from my phone.


Like any good scavenger, I picked up free plants given away by our local grocery store.  They'd seen better days, but I am repotting them slowly and protecting and fertilizing them with blood meal. The week before, I bought pumpkins, tomatoes, and hot peppers for a  quarter each, with a few begonias thrown in.  These are the little surprise nuggets that make life bearable, even in the midst of its horror.  I also picked up a couple of begonias in pink and white.  My container gardens are one of the pleasures I look forward to all winter. I like to plan by color, with black flowers being my favorites, but sometimes, life plans the garden for me.
