The red lilies started blooming yesterday, and some of the "kiss-me-kate" lilies in the east bed are blooming as well. It might be nice to put some of those red lilies near the blue delphinium, which is also blooming now --that would be a nice combination. The yellow foxglove is beginning to bloom.
I've been in the pool once (yesterday) --the water is still 78 degrees. Emma and Rob have been in several times, and I might have gone in earlier if I hadn't gotten this cold.
