Once again, no measurable rain has fallen here, one day I had high hopes when I saw large drops falling but the drops didn’t even join up on the table by the back door! The forecast for the next 7 days is wall to wall sunshine, not what I wanted to hear. There is still plenty of colour in the garden though, my mini meadow and the area where it floods every winter are still very green so there is water down there somewhere and some plants are still flowering as though there isn’t a drought, the rest of my lawn though is very brown and crisp and will stay that way until the rain comes.
Here are my six for this week…..
Those are my six for this week, I think I’ll be buying more late summer bulbs for the future as they seem to be doing the best in the garden when there is a shortage of rain. A lot of work has been done in the old fruit and veggie area, not by me I hasten to add, far too hot for me to do any hard physical work, but that won’t be planted up until the autumn rains come, but there could be a post about it before then. In the meantime, I’ll just keep on lugging the watering can round the plants that need it, we don’t have a hosepipe ban yet but it can’t be far away.
Thanks to Jon The Propagator for hosting once more, why not pay him a visit to see what is happening in gardens round the world.
