Here the Variegated Mondo Grass and Hostas are growing nicely in the Grandchildren's Garden...It's a simple little garden where we plant whatever inspires the children. When I return, we will plant small white pumpkins...yay!
Out back the Rose Garden is suffering, but still relatively green. Soon I will need to cut at an angle the iris leaves so the tubers can prepare for next spring. The Crepe Myrtles have lost their blooms for the most part...but the Butterfly Garden is thriving!
The Moon Garden is also suffering in the heat...it was so much prettier last year. A mole got the White Gaura, and last winter's weeklong exceptionally cold temperatures killed the White Spanish Lavender. Ah. Gardening is always a challenge! It's never the same experience. I like that.
And I'd like to leave you with this happy photo of the Black-eyed Susans, which are taller this year than I've ever seen them!
Take some time this week to stroll in a garden. It will rejuvenate your Soul. When this little Green Witch returns from her faraway travels, she will have pictures from other lands...see you then...!!
