Thank you for downgrading to a category 1 and watering my garden for me. I can't remember the last time it rained for 11 + hours. My rain barrels are full and my plants are happier than they've been in a long time. You shook the trees in my neighborhood and scared a couple of my dogs, but we're all still here. If you could please have a chat with Mother Nature and send some rain to the states struggling with drought, that woud be awesome!
It still very windy today but the garden is full of hungry insects. The caryopteris was full of little skippers.
I have a pot of rue on my patio and more in the garden. The rue in the garden was cut back severely in early spring and is much happier than these two pot-bound plants but both are full of swallowtail caterpillars. This rue is headed to the garden this fall.
'Autumn Joy' sedum
Aster ericoides has just started to bloom. This dry, partially shady bed is being redesigned this fall.
I wonder if any birds took shelter in this birdhouse during the storm?
The pink obedient plant in my front garden fell over in the wind. They are being transplanted to a different bed this fall when I redesign this part of the garden.
I secured this trellis using a bungy cord. A young pipevine planted last fall grows up this column.
