Garden - 22nd July 18
It hasn't rained for 5 weeks now. Everything in the garden that I haven't been able to water has died. That includes most of the scrubs we have planted in the 5 years. Managed to rig up a watering system for the new hedge on the front border. REALLY depressing!
The veg patch has had its leanest crop...ever!
Pls RAIN, Pls RAIN!
|Back of house showing the parched lawn|
|Awful, I know. But wanted to have a record of the parched state of the borders|
|Campsis - or Trumpet Vine - is doing well. It thrives in drought conditions!|
|Dahlias - in the tubs. They get fed and watered so are doing well|
|Pots by the Front Door|
|Grandson Tree. Even the geraniums are wilting!|
|Hanging Basket by door to Annexe|
|Hydrangea on pergola. Needs a drink!|
|Lilies have not been v good this year. This is one of the best.|
|Probably one of the best displays - 'cos it gets watered! Mo's fuchsias are doing well.|
|Petunias are also doing well. They love the sun. And they get watered!|
|The patio pots are doing well.|
|My veg patch! Not the best crops this year.|
