Today we start 9 weeks of drought… as you know my garden is very large and I have had to limit watering to my roses and tomatoes and alternating trees and shrubs that are closest to our living area.
As I write this I am in the garden looking up at a simply gorgeous summer sky… not a cloud in site! Even in times of drought, God does amazing things… with people and with plants.
There is always an up side, I read that it looks like the US will set a record in the month of July for the fewest tornadoes on record. After the horrible storms of last summer (remember Joplin, MO), that is sure welcome.
And, as far as the roses are concerned, they are usually covered in Japanese Beetles at this time of year and so far we have seen very few. In their place are beautiful blooms without bug bites! That is sure welcome!

Your tomatoes are way ahead of mine. My largest is the size of a marble! I miss zinnias. Gotta grow some next year. Hope your drought ends soon. ~ Wendy
Thanks for sharing your upsides and downsides to this crazy summer weather. I have now added a few plants to my “must grow” list for next summer since I know they’ll actually tolerate the heat and dry sufficiently as opposed to being as delicate as the plant tag sometimes states.
I have nominated you for a Sisterhood of the World blogger award. Please see details by clicking my battleofthemirror link. Thank you. ~ Wendy
