Weeds are also very healthy, a few have been pulled and others grow taller and stronger.
I've trimmed a bit off the ornamental evergreen bushes that are now twice as tall as me. The lawn mower has made some passes over the grass areas.
Two low planters have been overwhelmed by the kale that grew tall and bushy and flowered yellow. Won't try that one next year. Perennials above. Metal chair is a recent gs find.
The sweet peas and alyssum didn't have much of a chance and the slugs ate all but one of the small dahlias.
DH's maple tree in a pot is flourishing. Maybe it will be planted in the fall, will have to read about the 'right' time to plant a potted tree.
Dahlia plants have buds that are getting closer to opening. Roses are doing their summer best. Lilies have all come into bloom this week.
Its hot, going up to around 30 C in the daytime and cools down to about 18 C in the late evenings. Daylight is lasting until about 9:15 pm this week. I water in the morning and evening, mostly at the base of the plants. Next year maybe I will put in drip hoses (I say that every year). Tried them once but should have learned more first.
Thanks for visiting.
