a shrieking in the night...

"everything is blooming most recklessly...

if it were voices instead of colors...

there would be an unbelievable shrieking

into the heart of the night."

~rainer maria rilke

this clematis was supposed to be 'betty corning'....but i think she's played a trick on me...but a beautiful one.

today i planted basil..fern leaf dill..german thyme..flat leaf and green peppers..and the small striped fairy eggplants. tomorrow i hope to plant my artichokes and tomatoes. the tomatoes are mostly heirloom..brandywine..cherokee and yellow striped germans..some romas..a betterboy..and as always.. the sweet 100s. i'll have to wait until next weekend to put in the pole beans...and the 17th to plant my carrots..leeks and potatoes...according to the almanac. i've missed getting my root crops in early this year since i spent so much time setting up the potager...but it will be worth the wait!
