I was looking forward to it being in the 70s and maybe hitting 80 in Sept., but this is nuts. Can't do anything but water.

By the time I walked around looking at all the things that need attention, I was too hot to do anything but go back inside. We had about half an inch of rain Wed. night but it is so dry it is hard to do much.

Both of these plants seem to be slower growers than those with solid green leaves

We've had a couple of people who can do the tea ceremony offer to do one, but so far we've never taken them up on it. We probably should!

Yikes, an earthquake! We've had a couple of little ones over the years and they are creepy. At least with tornadoes you usually can tell when the weather is breeding them.

I agree. Sure is very dry and browning in my garden. I was surprised the country looked that good.

I had two pots of Bird Dancer in 2016 and am now down to one. We'll see how I do this winter.

Luckily I like Bird Dancer's leaves as the flowering has been sparse. Maybe I should feed it . .

The Cimicifuga I grow has had a nomenclature change but I have not bothered to learn it. Maybe there are different ones that bloom at different seasons.

I will have to do a pink vase as I am rather surprised at how many pink flowers I seem to have.

Thank you all for your comments. 'Lightning Strike' and variegata are definitely the showiest toad lilies when it comes to foliage. Spent most of yesterday doing more dividing, digging and watering in the garden and never opened a computer until the evening, thus this late acknowledgement.

I have big swaths of the G. macrorrhizum with solid green leaves. I tend to use the variegated plants as exclamation points.

Got the Astrantia from Avant Gardens in Mass. I've never seen it to buy locally.

Amazing that we have these lovely structures and then forget to use them even though they are staring us in the face! Enjoy your gazebo.

Another week ahead of beautiful weather with not a drop of rain in the forecast. Had hoses out all Sunday afternoon and need to get them to a new area today.

I loveTom's work and there are tons of pix on google. But somewhere he did say Hakonechloa sometimes just up and died and that could be a problem. I have had good luck with it once I got it established, so I am crossing my fingers.

I still have a pile of plants to get in the ground. Am watering at the moment as it is so dry. Boy, am I tired of seeing those pots of round heads of Mums stuffed with flower buds everywhere you look.

Not much. I think I was ready to see the moss go when we decided to put driveway holding beds there. And we'd just lost one of our two apple trees. Surprisingly, different moss has colonized a long strip next to a row of stepping stones. It's thicker and brighter than the moss that's gone. Though right now the birds and squirrels are digging in this moss and flinging it everywhere looking for bugs.

I just haven't posted about the part of the garden that exhibits GADD!

I'm sure I would have bought some other things if Mark had not been with me!

Definitely a new name needed. Then again we are still referring to an area as the compost corner even though it has not been the site of the compost bins for at least ten years!

I've been growing that Geranium for years. I had it in too much shade and it really took off when I moved it to the new driveway garden in 2015. But I have to laugh at that long trail of flowers which is not what I think of as Geranium behavior.

Usually you need pretty intense heat along with a weird sky to be really scary. This was mostly dramatic. But I know what you mean.

It's no fun without a real ticket stub. They are such great reminders.
