The red and white peonies got flattened by the storms last weekend -- I have rings around them, so they aren't as flat as some of the neighbor's. The pink peonies are fine, mostly because they didn't actually bloom until after the storms.

I have mostly weeded the E garden. I looked out from SR's window one morning and thought "eeek, I missed some tall weeds in the irises", and then I looked closer and realised that it was some of the infilling oriental poppies and bachelor buttons. Those can stay -- they'll fill in when the iris dies back. There are lots more california poppies blooming, and spots of blue and pink from the cornflower and larkspur. The shasta daisies are blooming, in four different shades of pink, from barely to bright.

Today is my mother's 85th birthday. She's now older than most of her parent's generation was, but there are still quite a few cousins left in her generation, as well as an older sister. As it is her birthday, we should have strawberries, but we don't, quite. There are some pink berries out there, but only one that could be considered ripe. It was yummy. :) (hey, I do the weeding and the watering, I should get dibs on the harvest)

The PT spent Tuesday working on some of the knots in the stabilising muscles around my shoulder, and they *still* hurt. This afternoon (when I go back) will be interesting.

You have a strawberry already? I'm jealous! Ours are still rather green, even the ones on the alpine strawberry plants aren't ready yet.

Wow!

I think even outside out little frost pocket they're probably not yet quite ready here, except in polytunnels.
