We are still in the summer time. Our weather is still in the 90's and the rains have not come. The Pool is still looking cool. One thing good this year is we have not had to use a heater for the pool. I just wish we were here long enough to used it. If you visited my other blogs, you know we have been busy with College things, family matters and traveling.
The yard has suffered some due to the heat. We cut it less due to the lack of rain and temps. We planted a rose garden but, the heat was not good for it. Will have to work on it for next year. Lost a few hedges. Had to cut them down. Will be replacing them next spring.
Our coleuses and lazy Suzie plants did well. I had them on a automatic water system. However the roses did not like the watering. Planted some English boxwoods, they are doing well.
Now the fall preps will start. Need to get out and weed out the weak stuff. Trim the hedges and clear out some of the gardens.
