Well if you haven't heard me whining about it yet let me tell you how hot it is here in the Vancouver area. Good grief we are not used to this degree of heat and humidity here. It is a good 20-30 degrees hotter than what we usually get and the plants are starting to suffer. Good thing I took pictures because if I forget to water one time they will all be gone.
Happy looking Black Eyed Susans (for our hostess) to start with.Here is my old "flower bed". I had hoped to get the box painted black but haven't gotten around to it. The petunias were supposed to completely fill in the whole bed but not yet.
Some of you have seen my Victorian planter before. It is getting pretty full but dries out so fast. Especially the top basket. This is on my top deck outside the french doors of the dining room.
Two types of daylilies that have been in my garden for about 15 years. That is white phlox in the bed. There is also a pink Japanese anemone too but the pink doesn't show up very well. It is a big kidney shaped bed in the middle of my front yard.
This is a black Hollyhock.
