Ohio Summer Flora Update




If you look back on my June 2 post I had a photo of a pathetic looking hibscus. That's it against the back. All it needed was some sun and rain. In northeast Ohio we've had a lot of rain this summer and every perennial plant I have is thriving. There is some miracle in the rain coming down from the heavens as compared to the water that comes from a faucet. I think the perennial garden (top) is actually out of control! Everything seems twice the size of last year.

I know what you mean. Rain water does seem to be better for the plants. Or maybe when it rains they just get a lot more water than we realize.
All your plants look beautiful.

The plants are beautiful!

I came over from Ruth's to see whom she'd commended with the award. It's nice to meet you!

I know my weeds are certainly thriving but that's only because I haven't kept up with things. Your garden looks lovely.
