  1. Well, despite the water restrictions, your yard is a delight!
    Have you been getting more rain? We just ended a 3 week dry spell and it's such a relief to see the rain tubs full again.

    1. We have received some nice rain. Starting to get hot and windy though. Hoping for some more showers.

  2. Lots more green in this photo! I especially like the blue in your front yard (should know what that is, but can't remember....) Here? We're getting a good rain right now! Hopefully some of the humidity that made the heat so uncomfortable will go away for awhile.....

    1. The blue you see is salvia. I don't know the variety as it was a pass along plant. It has gotten no extra water. Just rain. It looks great. I may never water it again.

  3. Your garden looks great. The three inches of rain you had last Monday must have been a real boost to your growth. I plant in a lot of containers also. I can control the water in the containers while the soil in the garden can get really dry quickly.

  4. Love the front entry with the blue flowers. Everything looks like it's filling in and getting lush looking. Your containers look great.

  5. It's all looking very neat and tidy Sherlock. It looks so different to those winter shots I remember, where things were all bare. What veg are you growing this year?

  6. You've got a nice selection of plants there that will hopefully do well for your spaces. I'm hoping we all get some more rain soon. Had some drops two days ago which was pretty great considering it's June here. Thankfully the fire season has been kinder than previous years.

  8. Everything is looking really good. Summer (or technically spring) must be good for you!

  9. Very pretty views of your home... Things like so pretty and green there. It's hard to imagine that you are in a drought...

  10. Love the blue bordering your driveway! Your vegetable garden is way ahead of mine, though with the heat we've been having lately, my tomatoes are really taking off. Glad you have gotten some rain, too.

  11. GonSS, your gardens really looks good for being in a water restriction. So far this year I haven't had to water from city water. The rain catch tank and the extra water stored in the barrels have stayed full with the rains here. I truly expect that with the new experimental rain gutter growing method that the water collected for the garden in the spring may just be able to last the summer. After working on the water collection for almost four years it's really starting to come together but there's always room for improvement. Now that the basic structure is working, beautification can begin. Gardens never remain the same at my house. Yearly improvements are always on the ToDo list. This year has been a struggle just to get the garden planted because of the extreme weather. Yesterday, I replanted my sweet corn because it was pounded by hail and washed out with six inches of rain racing down the steep bank behind my garden. I still have cucumbers to get planted from the seed starts. Never have I had such late plantings as this year. I still have 117 days of frost free growing so I am hopeful to get some harvest. There's always hope when gardening, don't you think?

    Have a great day in the Kansas garden.

    1. Gardens always change. You are doing awesome collecting rain water. We have a possible lead on another container that will hold a lot of water. We just need to figure out how to load it. I hope your replantings do well.
