Day 17 and Fried Lilies
It's day 17 of temperatures over 90 degrees, and almost no rain. There are sporadic crazy storms that pop up in different locations late every afternoon, but alas, none at the Stepchild Garden. Running the sprinklers means basically just keeping things alive; everything is going to seed so quickly it's a daily routine of deadheading to keep some summer color.
Going outside this morning to trim away some more fried flower blossoms in the perennial bed. Can you tell that I'm a little cranky about it?
