Sunny Border first week of August

July was hot and dry, and not much was blooming or growing around here. The Shasta Daisies cooked and something ate the flower buds off of all the rubekia daisies so they didn't bloom for a long time. The mandevilla have been very slow, and we are just now getting buds on only one plant, i have been very disappointed.


  1. Same here in Tennessee, everything cooked :)
    Your border looks nice and healthy !

  2. You have been hotter than us by ten degrees and we were very hot here for our state. It really takes it toll on things. That wall and the planting still looks wonderful.

  3. Thanks guys - we have two growing seasons here Spring and Fall. If you can survive the Summer, you win!
