I have been missing my "Shadow Shot" meme because the weekend seems to be the time I have to spend hours watering the garden and then trying to recuperate afterwards.
Some times I just want to fall to the ground and cry like a baby.
This drought caught me by surprise .. how can that be? I know we have a drought cycle every summer.
I think we got spoiled by the cool wet Spring and enjoyed it so much that I totally forgot to be prepared for this blanking weather and drought !
I snapped some pictures before the big watering mission started though .. because once I water .. I crawl into the house and down a few G2 drinks to hydrate and become human again ?
So here are some plants .. and I need help with one in finding out what type of hydrangea it is.
I bought it a few years ago to help camouflage the AC unit .. I love it .. wish I had another one .. but for the life of me I can't find the tag ... from a few years ago.
This is going to drive me nuts until I find out what it is .. meaning I have to go through all my plant tag boxes yet again ... BIG sigh !
Now for one of my oldest day lily
Frans Hal .. oops just one "L" in Hal .. I don't go for bi coloured usually but this was one of my first, so I made an exception ?
Pardon Me .. lines one side of the front border .. blooming it's little head off !
Little Grapette lines the other side of the border also blooming it's little head off .. you have to love hard working day lily !
Color Flash Astilbe in red ..
I have Stop Light heucherella in front of it to pick up those colours ...
I also have the `Lime`version of Color Flash in the back garden and they both share that soft pink flower head ... both very pretty !
So much work to do if I stop too often I won`t start again .. so getting these pictures was near to a miracle !
