I am feeling much better about the garden today. Things look better now that I have cut down most of the offending dying and flopping plants. I swept the debris off the deck, watered everything and moved a few containers around and now it looks just fine to me.
In fact I poured a glass of wine and relaxed on the bench and took it all in.
And then I poured a second glass........hmmmmmmm........maybe that is why it all looks so much better tonight!
I raise my glass to gardeners everywhere who are enduring the agonies of late July gardening. May we all remember:
"Gardening requires lots of water - most of it in the form of perspiration." ~Lou Erickson
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
