I decided to work in the garden today. Temperatures were high but I thought if I worked in the shady areas, it would not be too bad.
A couple of hours later and I didn't seem to be getting anywhere. The humidity was making me feel so weary, everything seemed to be an effort.
The moss garden is now a grass garden. Ha!! Perhaps I should call it the green garden :) That covers everything.
The Eucalyptus is shedding its bark. I love watching this process. When it is completed the new trunk will be like a piece of art.
Beneath the tree is this lovely Hydrangea. It has a beautiful blue/purple centre which I love.
Last year I divided Crocosmia Lucifer. They now run through every border and island bed and have really bought the garden together. They will tolerate drought and the beautiful red blooms fit in perfectly with this very hot Summer.
The garden looks lush and that is mainly due to the storm last week. Here's hoping there will be more to come.
My darling girl is not happy in the heat and spends most of her time in the front garden. Sadly she is slowly losing her sight.
We will cope. She is my faithful friend and we will work through this together.
The rabbits are taking full advantage of her dwindling sight, and inviting their friends into the garden.
Sadly her rabbit chasing days are over.
Stay cool, stay happy and enjoy these long Summer days, they seem to be passing very quickly.
