My flowers were seriously crying today. The temperature was 102 hot degrees, with no rain in sight. In fact, we have only had a mere 2 inches of rain since the beginning of June. Needless to say, I have been watering my flowers a lot. This is usually the time of summer we get the payoff with big beds and lots of blooms. Not this year. Between the heat wave in the spring, the hard frosts after things started blooming and now the drought, the flowers are confused. I could show you pictures of my garden, but I'll spare you the sight ;-) I'm not giving up though. I will keep watering and hope for some rain. I still enjoy looking at the daily changes, seeing the new growth and being outside amongst my flowers. Gardening is one of those things I am embracing at this time in my life. I will keep calm and garden on...and maybe start thinking about the fall flowers to come :-)
How are your gardens doing this year? I would love to hear about your tips for this dry summer!
