It's all nice and neat. About all we can do this year. Looks like you lost a conifer in the alley. I lost several this year along with a bunch of perennials. This just has not been a fun year to garden.Cher Sunray Gardens
Yes, I've lost at least 5. Sigh. I'm hoping this will be the "worst" gardening year and can look back and see how we survived.
I enjoyed the tour this morning. How neat and tidy and dry :)
you are brave...I hesitate to show my august garden...so wild and out of control....so many weeds have taken over in this heat and droughtBut maybe I will follow your lead....love your forest
I always enjoy your garden tours. About five minutes from home yesterday, we got caught in a heavy rain downpour. Got home, and we had nothing!
Oh wow, you are dry. Wish I could send some of this rain your way.
Oh, the alley is looking PARCHED. I sure hope you get relief from this. Yikes!
The alley has not had one drop of extra water from me. The shrubs on the left have had extra water. Some just couldn't take the extreme heat.
I especially love it when bloggers show where their gardens are in relation to their houses. Anyone can take a picture of a single flower and show it's beauty, but the whole yard may be a different story. This has been the worst year I have experienced in my 70 plus years. Our lawn is brown and crispy and the flowers and shrubs are suffering. Next year has to be better.After winter we'll all take a walk around our yards and see what can be done with what has survived. We gardeners are always looking ahead...that's the optimistic nature of us.Balisha
It is neat to take a tour of your property. Thanks for all the work you put into it.
I like the tours. Your forest is hardy and lush....it doesn't seem too affected. But the backyard is a shockeroo! I love how you have everything placed together. Looks great.
