Summer time and the living is DANG HOT! It's also dang dry. Just ask Fern:
Not looking so good. Either is my neighbor's yard.
Mine isn't much better but theirs really spoke to "DRY" to me! However, the weeds seem to survive this hot dry spell we're having this year.
They look just fine! In our yard we're watering the flowers faithfully.
These seem to be surviving. The planting area across the driveway looks stressed out.
I looked at my hydrangea and it's nice and lush and green.
Notice however that no blooms are visible..or are they? Look closely and you'll see one lonely blue bloom.
Hello my pretty! So pretty it felt wrong to cover it back up so I cut it so we can enjoy it's loveliness!
It will hold a place of honor! With the very cool and wet Spring we had I couldn't believe it when everyone...well the Farmer's Almanac anyway...was predicting a hot and dry Summer. It wasn't wrong but I was really happy to see this happening on Sunday:
Can you see the rain dripping from the gazebo? We need about a good weeks worth to make the farmer's happy and to hear my grass sing praises! Until then I'll let this lady keep praying for us.
And I hope she keeps praying for the half baked hosta next to her!
Good night all...don't bother calling on that telephone line...I'm heading to bed!
