When Leif came back from a walk with Canelo in the afternoon yesterday he came in and said have you seen your lilies. Why, what do you mean, of course I have seen them but not for the last hour or so. Well, he said, you better come out and have a look. There’s been someone doing some harm to them. I was out in seconds. Oh no ! Luckily it turned out to look more bad than it was. One small pelargonium pulled out of the flower pot. Two lilies pulled up with roots and all, three lilies and some of the fall phlox stems broken.
I now have the three broken stems in a vase. Two of them are the pink ones I was looking forward to see in bloom soon. I hope the buds will still open.
