BushNot Progress

This poor bushnot needs a subject tag of its own.

On April 23rd, I noticed it was beginning to sprout.  That would be the scrawny little shoots looking like anemic asparagus.

It's nigh-on as ugly as Cousin Annie's pansies.  Oops, 'xcuse me.

While it annually arises in a fairly well defined circle, this year some sprouts appeared beyond its usual confinement.  The bushnot that ate the island.

On May 7th, exactly two weeks later, it looked like this:

I think we could ring it with lawn chairs and watch it grow.  You can be sure you'll be seeing it again.  If my memory serves me (yeah, right), it'll reach its summer splendor sometime in June.  That would be if the CowNots stop escaping their meadow and munching on it, as they did yesterday.  Better the bushnot than the vegetable garden, which is where we found them earlier in the week.  Waaaaa.

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.  ~Psalm 119:18

Just caught up on all your posts. I would love to come and sit in a lawnchair by that bushnot. What fertilizer are you using!?
