It's been hot and humid and sunny for most of this month. Perfect August weather — unless you are trying to plant a new garden and get the rest of the garden ready for a tour. That exhausting scenario describes me and my garden.
Though it meant an afternoon indoors, I was thrilled when it rained and the temps took a dive today. My gauge says three quarters of an inch. Add the quarter inch we got at our house on Saturday, and we've got our week's inch of rain.
A real boon to the seven shrubs I put in in the last week, to say nothing of perennials trudged from the holding beds in the back garden to their home in the front landscape.
Looking forward to a day of weeding tomorrow — and perhaps a little shopping for a few more garden treats.
