It's a wet papyrus morning...

Humidity nearly 100% after more rain last night, and temperatures reaching 97ºF (37ºC) mean it's a quiet morning, blog-wise.

Papyrus though... in the morning sunlight I can't resist getting my feet wet for some photos!


If you're not growing this plant (Cyperus papyrus), you're missing out!

We used to, and we ought to again really, it's a great plant!

it's also quite resistant to heavy rain damage. Where many of my perennials were bent over by a heavy storm last night and have contorted themselves to adjust (so they look weird when propped back up), the Papyrus can really take a pounding!

Now THAT is what I call humidity! More than I could take myself, but your papyrus is clearly loving it.

I love love love papyrus! One of my favorites in my garden. Mine are all in pots - what fun that is to get the root ball out at the end of the season!

Gerhard: you would love it here right now. Perfect time for a visit (upper 90's, 70%+ humidity). So relaxing. ;)

Lisa: mine is in a big plastic pot ("plantainer") that I can roll over on its side then pull the plant and rootball out of. Then I just chop up the rootball into manageable sizes for overwintering. Or just put the whole container into the garage and fill with water.
