Just like July

Waking this morning, the scene outside from my window, was blurred by the condensation of a very humid day.

The irony is that we have had a well dug for garden use, and it’s been raining quite a bit ever since! There is a lot of summer left, so we will benefit if for no other reason than we won’t be watering the landscape with treated county water which is costly.

A bit of a cheat in terms of participating with the wonderful British blogger http://thepropogatorblog.wordpress.com because this hydrangea was photographed during a garden tour I took this past week. The owner didn’t know it’s name….do you?

The curcuma blooming is a wonderful sight and made me wonder why none of mine are in bloom. 😳

The garden was created by a true gardener. She has the heart of a gardener and the eye of an artist. And the ladies who took this tour are true gardeners as the rain did fall, but they were not thwarted!

I won’t be going outdoors to take my ‘6 on Saturday’ because of the weather. I keep hoping that I can report something from this new small border we created in March. The privet have taken, the iris aren’t sure they love it, the grasses lost their variegations and the salvia are slow from the cuttings I planted. A tiny marigold seedling along with a coreopsis seedling have nothing to show yet….so we will save that for another day. The back border with the elephant ears, the ginger lily, stromanthe and bromeliad have not filled in, and I will keep that opening to the woods as is. I recently saw a fox taking a snooze in that clearing, and also saw a mother deer and fawn walk through the passage. Until the rain passes this is likely what we will be working on.

Pop on over to see what other gardeners have blooming on the link above. May the rain fall, May the sun return.
