Yard and garden journal entry 8/17/2011




This is our last daylily of 2011.  It has been a good gardening season and a lot of fun, but the fact remains that summer is ending.  On our property, our growing season officially ends when the clusters of Rudbeckia wilt away in September.  By then, the petunias and impatiens are looking tired and out of season and it is time to clean up the flowerbeds in preparation for next spring.

Still room down here in Texas, my friend. As long as you have water, your lillies will be happy for a while.

Flowers? You have flowers? Must be all the rain up there.I must admit they're pretty.

Between the humans, animals, and gardens, our water bill is outrageous. Guess who planned on a rainwater collection system for this summer?

107 degrees here today in central Texas. Please send Art and I some rain!

When you send Helene and Art rain, hopefully some of it will make down I-35 to me, Central Texas on the cusp of the Hill Country. We're still bone dry here, Zach.

You all have been in my thoughts during your crisis. Some of the photos are almost beyond belief. With the gulf storm season coming up, maybe you all will get some relief... hopefully without getting flooded out.
