Nice & sunny, cool here! I sprayed the areas under my hummer feeders with DeerBGone since I couldn't get out for peppermint oil yet. I hosed off the bees & sprayed the cooking spray. The bees have diminished greatly for the time being! The deer spray has a distinct odor & just sprayed bushes nearest the feeders! I suspect they will return!
your garden must be magnificent when you see it as a whole. love the little strolls you take us on!
nothing much is blooming here. because of the drought, i've made some radical changes to the whole garden and the only flower bed i haven't changed yet is the white one. i will enjoy it until it quits blooming and then i will make my final change. so i will be getting my flower fix from your posts and everyone else's from now on.

We have frosts sometimes until June so seeding is a gamble. I start things under my lights sometimes (more in the past) The weather changes to cooler days & nights in Sept. Who knows now (??) its so changeable. This cool August has been an unreal change but a total blessing. I love it! Its been so kind to the grass & garden. I watered so much less than other years. We hardly got a 90 degree day so far this summer. I only put my umbrellas out twice to protect from the sun.
