I haven’t been taking as many photographs of my garden this summer as I usually do.
I think this is in part because of the hand injury that I incurred in early June which made it hard for me to do any gardening, watering or even to hold a camera – or blog. The other reason why I haven’t taken a lot of pictures is because, once the really hot weather hit my garden – in June and July and it didn’t rain much at all – hint – not at all … and I wasn’t watering much because of my hand injury – my plants weren’t blooming very much at all.
Oh don’t get me wrong. My garden was getting some care. My husband was watering it on and off, but not as much as it should have been watered in all that heat and I think even if we’d been watering it daily the plants still would have been in survival mode because it was a much hotter summer than ever.
When my plants have bloomed the flowers have been spectacular. Thankfully, now the we’ve reached the end of August the weather is starting to cool somewhat and we are getting a bit more rain so my plants are a lot happier than they have been for a while. That means they’re starting to bloom again.
What’s blooming in your garden?
