I'm determined to have a wonderful garden despite
the many setbacks of this season, one of which I
haven't mentioned before is MOLES. I have two
cats that have managed to catch only one. I don't really
want to put out poison, so I just watch daily has
they shred the grass and garden.
|The okra is starting to wind down. Still harvesting a few.|
|I thought this Dianthus had died - guess not- looks pretty now.|
|I know cantaloupe is getting bad press right now - but I thought|
this was neat how it is growing up the fence - it grew from seed
out of the compost pile. I will probably feed it
to the rabbit on the other side of the fence.
|Abraham Darby has survived the extreme heat and drought.|
|This photo doesn't do justice to this canna. It|
looks really beautiful today. I started this from a piece
given to me by my father-in-law early in the year.
|I'm extending flower garden - part of this is|
a newly dug area. I also took a couple of dying
Elaeagnus shrubs from the front yard and
transplanted them here. See the twiggy shrub in
background on the right?
|I put the potted Fireworks purple fountain grass in the ground. I|
also transplanted a few of the Firehouse nandina here also.
|I've been dividing iris and daylilies also.|
|The Graham Thomas rose has survived the drought and heat. It|
has almost doubled in size.
