Remains of the Day
I went to the garden yesterday for a morning walk and arrived a little after 6:00 AM thinking the summer hours had started. They hadn't. The summer hours don't start until the first of May. So I hung around until 7:00 and was one of the first to go in. It was members only from 7:00 to 8:00 so it was quite peaceful.
There had been a big event at the garden the night before and they did an excellent job of cleaning up except for this one wine glass I spotted. The funny thing was that I was there for nearly two hours and this glass was still in the exact same spot when I left.
I got to see my first night bloom of the season. Some of the night blooming cactus have already bloomed and I missed them but I caught this one before it started to wilt.
I also admired this pretty cornflower. It's getting to be that time of year when garden walks are best early in the morning before it gets too hot.
