Garden Journal 7/15/2018

It was in the 80’s this weekend and we are in need of some rain again. I just watered all of my vegetables and some new hydrangeas I planted this year for the first time in weeks. Right now it looks like we have a chance of rain on Wednesday and I’m really hoping we get some!

My front bed is really coming in now. I can’t wait until everything is HUGE next year. It’s going to look so great against the brick.

If anyone knows what this is (yellow perennial), please comment below. I think I got it at the Master Gardener plant sale last year. It’s huge. Maybe 5′ tall? I’m not sure that I love it because its a huge plant and very small blooms.

The flower field has started to bloom now. The zinnias and cosmos are first.

    Beautiful blooms indeed! That yellow daisy I believe is a Rudbeckia laciniata.
