This is not a time for my garden to shine. I haven’t weeded or deadheaded. I have hardly even looked at the plants. Its either been hot or rainy, or we have been away for a few days. I know the cool weather will return, and I will have ambition again. There are plans to dig out an overgrown area, divide and relocate some Japanese iris, and remove some other under performers. Whether these plans make it to fruition or not depends on my creaky old shoulders, the cooperation of the weather, and if I feel like bothering with the whole project. Some gardening years are like that. We will see.
In the meantime, I ran outside for a few pix the other day between storms. At least, I haven’t had to drag hoses around, and in the grand scheme of things I don’t have anything to complain about.
So that’s about it for now. The asters and mums will start blooming soon, and hopefully I’ll have some autumn garden projects to share as well.
