I really love the way Sahin's Early Helenium is beginning to shape up after a lot of pinching out to save flowering to the last minute ..it doesn't look like much from these pictures but this is just the 1st of August .. so I expect some great results coming along as the month slips by. Already we are back to drought conditions .. I have hoped for rain and it probably will tomorrow .. but will I get all my garden chores done tomorrow as well ? I know the garden is screaming at me and I don't blame it a bit .. poor plants. Take a look at the second picture with the fly on the left hand side ... smirking at me as I snap away .. bad fly !!
