Today is day 21 without rain.
We have had hot weather and my gardens are suffering.
But there are a few that are still blooming despite the heat and lack of water
to share for Tootsie's Fertilizer Friday
This Astilbe gets full shade and lives under the eaves of the garden shed
A few more surprise Poppies are blooming
Hollyhocks will thrive in almost any conditions
This Statice doesn't seem bothered at all
Another thing I haven't had to plant for years - 'Grandpa Ott' Morning Glory
Nothing is as hardy as Daylily's!
The Asiatic's are quite hardy too
Shasta Daisy's are a thug in my garden. Nothing bothers them!
I grew Gaillardia because I heard they were drought tolerant. So far they are laughing at the conditions
This Lavatera is also a volunteer and gets late afternoon shade from the Ninebark
I love Zinnia's - one of the most drought tolerant annuals there is!
This black Petunia is one of the lucky ones that lives in a pot.
Potted plants get watered, gardens only get rain.
(we have a well and it's them or ME!)
Now excuse me while I go outside and do a rain dance ;)
