After a long absence

It has certainly been over a decade since anything has bloomed in that line running from the site of the old playhouse. Now appearing, though, are creamy white, doubled, trumpetless narcissi with scalloped perianths. We have even smaller blooms with pale, peachy trumpets; these are reappearances from bygone days, also. Both of these varieties may have come from a Park mix of long, long ago. The first Tubergen's Gem species tulips are blooming, the ones with alternating brownish-red and creamy petals. Tomato plants have blossoms. Whatever volunteer squash or pumpkin plants there are have not yet succumbed to white powdery mildew, despite the rains.
