Rainy Summer Garden
Well, I am finally seeing some results from all the spring planting...some good, some mistakes! My banana tree is starting to grow now that we are above 80 degrees (coolest July I can remember) but come next spring, I will need to move some things around. Not being familiar with some of these plants, misjudged their growth pattern...I needed more bunching together of some things. And my petunias are supposed to be lush this time of the year but with the hard, continuous rain they have taken a beating! That center opening is supposed to be a sea of red by now! Our biggest job this year is fighting weeds between the rain storms! But we needed it! I think next year I am going to put some pots buried in the ground with colorful flowers instead of trying to plant to fill in!
