About Arthur in the Garden!

A gardener in Downtown Raleigh, North Carolina. I began this blog only to document all the questions I was asked about gardening. It has grown as an attempt to regularly post ideas and things about gardening.

After Hurricane Florence

In Raleigh we did not receive the worst of Hurricane Florence. The electricity did go off at 5 am Friday morning and did not come back on until 1pm Saturday,

In the middle of the storm the Colchicums bloomed! They are like giant fall crocus:

And a moonflower

And Passion flower

Here are some photographs from around Raleigh:

The Coast and Wilmington area are much worse…
