The garden is starting to wane a bit.
At least the vegetable garden is. The bugs and heat are starting to win the battle.
I have a few watermelon that are hanging on for dear life.
But the zinnias out front seem to be pleased as punch with the heat.
Their bright pink petals seem to thrive with the heat.
The pentas love the heat as well.
I planted a limelight hydrangea for the first time this year.
It looks like it’s happy under the trees out back.
I’m so glad I bought it because my blue ones have refused to bloom for me this year.
I need to start taking notes on my garden. This year has been a bit of a trial on what grows well and where. I want to work on better forming the beds out back. Build some raised ones for the vegetables. Do something about all the weeds that keep popping up.
When my son and I pulled into the driveway the other day he said to me, the yard has come a long way Mom. That made me feel really good. It has come along way. It was mostly a sandy mess for a long time. We’ve only lived here 2 years and I know it takes time.
But it’s getting there.
