Garden: A Rain Storm's Affect
Two hard rains this week have taken their toll on my roses and peonies.
So sad. The roses will get another blooming in or maybe two before summer is over, but the peonies, at least these dark pinks are done. I'm glad I cut a few more the other day!
This garden in the front of the house faces northwest, and is in shadow this morning still.
My spirea is blooming
And so is Larkspur
The hollyhocks are doing very well
So are my Feverfew
The Annabelle hydrangea are looking great
And this hollyhock is looking good too!
I'm glad all is not lost in this garden! I also got some salvia at a deep discount this past week. We were at Lowes and they were marking their small pots down to .50! I bought five for this front garden, and I bought four sweet potato vine's for the same price. The sweet potatoes are going into pots for the deck with white geraniums!
I haven't checked the gardens behind the house to see how those are doing, yet, so I need to get out to do that soon. I need to transplant my two zucchini plants today - I'm going to keep them in pots this year as they are the only veg I'm growing this year, other than any volunteer tomatoes that might come up.
How are your gardens this year?
Linking up with Bernideen and Sandi for some fun! Thank you ladies for hosting these weekly gatherings!
And I'm joining a new to me gathering The Art of Homemaking.
