Garden

Update on the planters I started in May .
May

August
They have filled in beautifully.

Put up a metal arbour over the front walk this spring. Picked it up at the local iron sculptor .
Trained morning glories up it. Love the sky blue colour of the flowers.

We got a sprinkle of rain Sunday night.The first in over 4 weeks. At least the shrubs aren't drooping, the forecast is for more rain tomorrow but temps of 33.Happy to have any kind of a shower.Trimmed back some perennials that were past their prime this morning, so humid out that even tho I was out for only an hour came in dripping wet with sweat and red faced. Should have taken that picture.
What I would like to know is why with all the dryness why are
the weeds bright green, growing and unfazed by the weather.
Healthiest things in my garden.

Great idea, the before and after shots. I love those sky blue morning glories. You'll be happy to know our weeds are also doing really well!
