The Garden in Late June

It's been hectic around here, as you might imagine from the last two posts, and I don't always get around to all the watering the plants have needed in this hot, dry weather. It sure is nice that everything isn't too finicky.

Robert the Llama Butcher is garden blogging and remarking on how nice it is to have a fairly drought hardy garden. I definitely agree!

Despite the heat and the fact that many things are already getting bug-eaten, I find I can stare for a long time out the back window or sit on the back deck when the mosquitoes aren't too bad and marvel at the garden that was just scrubby grass and a lot of weeds about a year ago. The flowers seem at almost their very best right now. It's incredibly relaxing for me to look at and be amazed by.


Hey - we have that little bench too. Got it cheap at National Wholesale Liquidators.

We got ours for free as a present from my mom, who got it cheap at a drugstore, I believe.

If it is going to sit outside and fall apart in a few years or less, it doesn't make much sense to pay a whole lot for it.

Beautiful. Just -- beautiful!

Your coneflower is so tall! I love the varying heights and textures.
