It seems I have done nothing but complain about this heat….(Limelight Hydrangea)
But I have many things in the garden that say…. “So what! We can take it!!”
Actually many things are really doing good. (Henryii Clematis)
All of my Altheas or Rose of Sharon’s are bloming…. this one is Red Heart.
It is blooming it’s little heart out, I love that is a standard and will always be a small tree.
This is the first blooms on some new Queenly Purple Hollyhocks, I planted the seeds in April, and they are only about 20 inches high. I will plant many more of these!
This is a favorite, it was marked Creme De Cassis, but I am wondering if that is wrong. There are so many kinds, but it is pretty none the less.
My variegated hydrangea, Light ‘o Day, is blooming this year. Last year it did not.
They are pretty start to finish, these are new buds…. then they turn purple.
A wild mess of color…. but it is really doing good in the heat.
The zinnias are really bright and happy. I love these.
They are fantastic in the new kitchen garden.
And the little verbenas from seed are so cute… they are many different colors. They have just started blooming.
A little baby bird that was in the flower beds. I tried to get him to a safer place away from my dogs.
So, as for the gardener, I have been outside only when I have to be. Early morning and evenings. We have had tennis camp this week, and then tennis and golf camp next week. It is just too hot for that, but the kids and garden seem to be taking the heat better than I do!
Happy Gardening Everyone…..Brooke
