Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend.
The garden is soaked after weekend storms
and it is not giving the flowers a chance to stand up
from the storms before.
The flowerbeds are looking pretty sad but I am afraid
to complain about all of the wet weather because
we all know it could turn on a dime and go to hot
and dry instead of hot and wet.
So there will probably be no full shots forth coming
of whole beds.
The New Dawn roses were pretty though with
the raindrops upon them.
I worked on the rose garden bed over the weekend
between the showers and dug up all of the Dr. Huey
turned roses. The remaining two bushes were planted
in the woodland bed. There they can grow their little
hearts out and mildew all they like. LOL!
New roses are being added as they arrive to take the
place of the four red rose bushes.
It is a good time to buy roses and many are at clearance
or half price. Henry Fields had pink double Knockouts
for half price so I could not resist getting another one.
They are blooming machines.
Also the son made a mulch run for me this weekend
so I have twenty bags of it to spread on the redone
rose bed and in other beds.
The Blue Celebrity petunias that were grown from
seed and planted in the planer in front of the garage
are the only ones the bugs have not gotten to yet to
chew holes in.
Stella de Oro lilies were a little rain soaked over
the weekend also.
The Elephant ear in the foot tub is liking the weather.
I tried growing the bulb in the ground last year and
it did not like the clay soil at all but this year it seems
to be going strong in the tub so far.
This little white Phlox is blooming near some
Burgundy Gaillardia in the corner bed. I do not
remember planting this one. It is not my white
David Phlox though and is shorter but it
brightens up the bed a little.
It was a very good weekend despite some showers
on and off.
Happy Gardening Everyone,
