Tomorrow is already the 20th anniversary of my 29th birthday. Where did the time go?!?
I spent the early evening yesterday watering with my gardening assistant Coco. Turns out she's not that into gardening and mostly runs around like a ding-dong wanting to play with her ball. She has to constantly interrupt me while I water too of course.
Last week I took myself off the appointment list for open gardens. My garden isn't really a late season garden, so I felt like people would be disappointed if they visited.
I'm too critical of my garden I know, but once the grass burns up and the temperatures rise, the garden starts looking a bit shabby. Several 100 degree days doesn't help either.
So for those that may want to see what's happening in the garden, below is a little tour on an August evening.
