How was your 4th of July?
The weather in NYC was great, so we took advantage of it to bring our garden back into balance after our vacation week away.
With all the rain we’d had, the garden looked like an over-watered jungle when we got back — very unusual for July in Brooklyn.
So we cut things back, tied up stragglers, trained unruly vines and removed multiple bags of detritus!
Finally we sat back to enjoy the abundance of the first lilies of the season:
We didn’t get to see the fireworks this year, but my friend Bruce Barone posted some great “garden fireworks” on flickr.com. Here’s a beauty. Enjoy!
