Awaiting a Storm
It's not so nice for the gardener. Yesterday I pulled a big quack grass that uprooted this Dianthus. I watered it well , but I'm afraid I murdered it. I think I'll wait for rain before I weed anywhere near the plants.
This is how our grass looks now. It's quite a change from the lush growth that Ed couldn't keep up with mowing.It crunches under foot when you walk across it.
This breathtaking day lily has its day in the sun and seems to bask in the heat. Not me I'm completely wilted and even though the weather calls for strong storms, I hope the rain doesn't pass us by this time!
