So Much For Xeriscaping!
Well, I won't do THAT again! I got NO responses from that page...I guess no one is interested in saving water!!!
Talk about saving water, my bearded iris' and the poppies rotted from all the rain we had over the past few weeks. Not the roots or rhizomes, but the buds. Just rotted! YUK. I hope they'll be OK next year. I would guess they will be OK. I think I'll just cut off the rotted buds down to about 6 inches from the ground. that way the rotted stuff won't travel below the soil.
Now it's SO hot that it's downright unsafe to work in the garden, so it will continue to look a bit ragged. That's the way it goes folks. My garden has to fit MY lifestyle. I'm hoping I won't be one of those folks who die while gardening. They would say afterwards, "Well, at least we know she died happy-in the garden." Sorry, I'd rather be alive and NOT die in my garden!!!! :-)
So, what can I tell you? Make a comment or ask a question below, and I'll respond.
