Waiting For Rain

It has been a dry summer. We had little rain here from Dorian last week and none since. 95 F. degrees this afternoon, 12 September!

Early this morning the garden seemed innocently unconcerned.

      Sorry y’all have to go through the stress again of another storm. The zinnias usually have mildew by now but they look ok too. I’ve always heard it’s the humidity not rain that causes them and we’re definitely getting humidity.

    As dry as it must be, your garden looks great, Susie. Getting by on rain alone has got to be frustrating during your dry spells. It’d be inconceivable here. I hope you get some rain soon. There’s none in our forecast until November at earliest. The annual accumulation in my rain barrels doesn’t stretch far enough – if I had a spot for a cistern, I’d install one.

    Your garden is looking wonderful in spite of no rain, full of colour. We got the tail end of Dorian after she had crossed the Atlantic and had torrential rain that day, the garden really appreciated it! Hope you get rain soon.

    For a dry garden, everything looks beautifully hydrated and colorful. I love the bright colors of the zinnias — especially the red ones. My favorites!

    Hope you have had some rain Susie. It can be so stressful for the garden AND the gardener when it is dry for longer periods, but your garden seems to be coping better than you would expect. At this time of year the cool nights and heavy dew revive my plants but we need rain too!

      We’re still waiting for rain Cathy, not so patiently. Hope the rain finds your garden as well. I think you’re right about the cooler nights and dew.
