and while I’m ranting, enough with the rain!

July 25, 2008

The heliopsis sunflowers, which have yet to bloom but finally set buds when it reached 6 feet, are knocked almost to the ground, crushing all the little guys around them. Some Batchelor’s Button seedlings have rotted, and the cleomes just can’t deal. They’re laying down waiting for someone to pick them up and take them back to the civilized garden they knew they were born to. The ferns we planted under the trees are loving it though, and the very cool Lizard Tail I planted in the “ditch garden” is very happy and blooming for me for the first time.

I fear Mr. Ellis Hollow told me the truth when he said last summer and fall were unusually warm and dry. Right now it’s sogging, chilly, and grey. This is July?!

My honey is outside mowing nonetheless, in the rain, before we lose the house in the grass.
