To sum this week up so far and the status of the garden.
Let us just say I am thinking of reading up on how to do a rain dance or two. It continues to be just miserably hot and dry here in the hills.
I do not know the name of this beautiful hibiscus. Pure white with a pink center. You see I pinched the seeds off of a bush one fall in a nearby mall. Yes, I am a seed thief. LOL! To my daughters embarrassment.
My favorite rose “Crimson Bouquet” never disappoints me when it comes to taking all of the extreme weather conditions here. It just keep putting on those big scarlet blooms and the fragrance is strong and smells divine.
“Bright Eyes” Phlox
The phlox plants are all struggling here this summer. The plants are smaller and all of the leaves on the bottoms are turning crispy brown. But when you walk into the back yard the fragrance is so good.
“Monet’s Moment” Lobelia is just starting to bloom.
The grass around here is brown and crunches when you walk on it. The corn is all curled up and getting yellow at the bottom.
All of my plants are suffering and look terrible from a far with browning and yellowing leaves on the bottom despite the regular watering.
