It's Mid July --
The garden is still lush thanks to an abundant supply of rain
There's always "thyme" in the garden
my favorite Indiana Summer petunias and a dark purple salvia
and thyme, of course!
the lilies in the pond are even blooming
(in fact, it looks like the lilies are trying to take over the pond!)
And there is always time to work in the garden . . .
Garden chores are constant!
But when it's hot out, one stops for a glass of icy tea and a nosh
(in this case pecan shortbread)
I am afraid, however, that the heat and dry that we are beginning to have
will put an end to our lush garden.
I've been watering . . . and trying to keep ahead rather than get behind.
But as it gets hotter, the garden gets tended to less --
for I am truly a fair weather gardener!
