Well we finally had a substantial rainfall overnight (Lynn of Composer in the Garden) to give my lawn and garden a much-needed drink.
I can hear the garden breathing a sigh of relief along with me. I pretty much let my garden be what it will be each year according to what Mother Nature dishes out. But even I couldn’t let my drooping plants go without water. We’ve had hot days with no rain for weeks, if not months. So I have been trying to give the worst looking plants and my containers a bit of a drink 1 or 2 times a day depending on the daytime temp.
Despite the dry weather and heat, I think flowers are still blooming a few weeks ahead of schedule.
My mini Gladiolus are blooming a beautiful red.
and my Gerbera Daisy is on round 3 of blooms.
My Day lilies and succulents absolutely love the heat. I’ve pretty much ignored them as far as water, but they don’t seem to have minded.
What blooms are thriving in your weather?
Even the birds are singing a lot today, as if to say “thank you”.
