Mid Summer Progress Report--Next Year

After eight days of triple digit heat, eight days of rain and thunder showers, Next Year is looking worse for wear.  Receiving rain was a blessing and the rain is non discriminating:  it provides moisture for trees, shrubs, flowers and weeds!  Some gardening observations:

  • Fall begins September 22--which means there is nine more weeks of summer.  Mother Nature what's on your agenda?
  • I raked leaves today.  The dogwood tree and other trees have been so stressed from the heat and lack of moisture they had started to drop their leaves.
  • The day lilies are making a come back--they are tough as nails which is one reason I love them.
  • Cutting the grass after a heavy rain takes more time than a normal cutting.
  • The lavender will most likely have to be replaced.
