Summer is here- June 5, 2015

Sometime in the last few days summer arrived. I think we had even run the furnace at week ago. The temperature had gotten down to the low 40's for several evenings in a row.
But now the airconditioner is back on and I am changing my shirt after every 30 minute shift in the garden.

Here are waterlily pictures from the last few days.

It is also finally time for the caladium to sprout. I took them (all 50 of them) outside in their pots 3 weeks ago. We had 2 days in a row of 80's and I thought they would grow. Not. But now they are growing. In 45 days there will be caladium color around the garden.

Hint for the week- cheap imitation vanilla keeps the gnats away.

Your water lilies are very pretty! I found your blog because my husband told me about it -- he is your cat veterinarian. I have a garden blog too, and I was very excited to find another IC garden blog! -Beth
