ponderings of time...

It just seems like everything is on hyper mode when it comes to growing in my garden. I don't know if it's because I'm getting older and the days are going by faster or if in fact things are growing and blooming sooner.

I noticed over the weekend that the Irises already have their heads, so do the poppys and the Knautia Macedonia also have the beginnings of their heads. I don't recall that they were this advanced last year.

But in thinking back two years ago - we were leaving for France at the end of May and I was really sorry that I was going to miss the blooming of the Irises. The morning of the day we left, we were all packed and headed to work; I noticed that some of the Irises had bloomed. I quickly snapped a few pics and then we were gone for two weeks. By the time we returned, they were pretty much all done blooming and faded.

So, anyway, the point is that I don't think any growing has really sped up - it's just my measurment of time.
