We’ve had four days of rain in a row, I think. My poor tulips are starting to droop from the weight of it all.
The ajuga on the opposite side is just starting as well. I’m not sure why the leaves around it are so yellow, though. I’d pulled off all of the dead leaves, but maybe I should have cut it back even further. I’m a bit worried that everywhere this is called a ground cover, but I have just this one clump, and it doesn’t seem to be misbehaving.
The rhododendron are in full bloom today as well. Frank calls these the boring PJMs, but I like them. We never had them in the old garden, but every else has them, and I wanted a few. I mean, I wouldn’t mind some other varieties as well, but I’m glad I have a couple of the old stand-bys as well. I think the lavender color is just wonderful.
