He said it was going to rain, even thunderstorm for the past two days.
I believed him, so I didn't water my new coneflowers.
I took the hose out there last night and gave the area a good watering. It probably sprang right back to life overnight.
The new path area is filling in nicely with my red wave petunias and purple Angelonia. I also planted pink petunias, but you can't really see them in this picture.
I like the Shasta daisies with the red petunias. The daisies are very short in this area. Probably because they were moved and stunted with all the digging. I wish they would stay short here because they are the perfect height right now.
They are much taller on the side deck garden where they are mixed with yellow Margarite daisies. I am thinking of moving some of the yellow daisies to the arbor gardens this weekend.
The lychnis coronaria just started blooming, too. Everything is about a week or two late this year due to the cold weather.
This lychnis is on the other side of the house.
Way in the back you an see a lot of orange daylilies. They usually start blooming by July 4.
I do hope we get some rain soon. The grass is beginning to turn brown and all the flowers are crying out for a good drink of water.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
