Our Magnolia tree is producing flowers
They do not last very long
They are stunning
Hubby will put this on the wall for my passion flower
I love these dahlias
Thursday evening weather promised on my phone,
needless to say we got zero rain, nothing,
loads of black clouds, a very muggy night, but everywhere is still dry.
Our Magnolia tree is suffering in this heatwave, earlier this year the buds were damaged twice by the snow, and we had a poor showing of flowers. So now in the middle of a heat wave it is flowering again, I am glad we keep this tree small, it's just to wonderful to lose to the weather. I pick up leaves off the lawn at least three times a day. The twisted Willow I planted last year is doing well, it's losing leaves but still looks healthy.On the whole the garden is not too bad, it's small enough to water, most of my fruit have finished, just blackberries and late raspberries left, I am picking blackberries each day, but they are small.
It is one of the few times when I am pleased I don't have a huge garden, every garden blogger is saying the same, crops are poor, low yeald, and hard work to keep watering.
The heat in the greenhouse is giving good crops on tomatoes, cucumbers and the pepper plant is full, but I'm watering twice a day, needless to say the succulents and cacti love it.
Me I'm just wilting
