My sunflower hedge has some leaves which are definitely drooping in that ‘what took you so long with the hose?’ look, and my basil babies are just hanging on. But some things do surprise me.
My cabbage patch. This is usually my problem plant as the soil is really too acidic for healthy brassicas. I did put lime on this spring, so maybe it has paid off.
No trapped cabbage moth butterlies inside this time. And believe me, that’s a huge improvement.
The red cabbage variety isn’t hearting up, so I will use it for leaves in stir fry. But these are definitely destined for something more grand.
And my newest little garden is just fine. Heat wave? What heat wave? And all three plant varieties have put on growth. The eragrostis grass, gaura and verbena flowers all look fine.
We have a very large hare who seems to have made his home somewhere close to the house. In the forest I suspect. But twice now he has been caught bounding away when we drive up.
He did that brilliant hare trick of standing stock still and thinking that if he didn’t move, then he wouldn’t be seen. Despite the fact that he sticks out like a hare on a lawn.
Tomorrow I’ll take more pictures of the lilies which are all starting to flower.
