Its been hot and humid the last few days and feeling pretty tropical. My garden is beginning to look like a jungle since I haven’t bothered weeding or deadheading or much else lately. So although I may have retreated indoors to the AC for a bit, my plants don’t seem to mind the juicy air. In fact, some of them are pretty darn happy.
The dahlias are doing fine. I still have daylilies, shasta daisies, heliopsis, and phlox blooming too. I have plenty of color, now I just need a little pleasant weather so I can get out and enjoy the garden.
I relocated a double white brugmansia this year, and it had not done so well. First, it was attacked by spider mites. Then, it wanted more water than it was getting. It would be perfect for the spot, but may not be there for long. Spider mites regularly fall from the redwoods, and the redwoods suck moisture from the soil.
I love the burgundy Hibiscus!
Happy Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day!
Pretty portulaca. I haven’t been able to find that kind (flat leaves) in many, many years. The flowers are a bit different from the pointed fat leaved ones.
I love this plant. It takes all kinds of neglect and still looks great
