My garden plants went from being exposed to somewhat chilly weather to it turning downright hot.
As of June 13, 2021, I’m having to keep an eye out for wilting container plants.
The zinnias were buds last week. There is some progression this week.
I adore zinnias. Has to be one of my very favorite flowers.
Zinnias have a high tolerance for heat and the flowers are so beautiful. It is the perfect cut flower for a bouquet to bring indoors.
I especially like the black veins you see just before you can tell what color the flower is going to be.
Zinnias are beautiful from beginning to end.
The clematis plant is blooming again. If only I’d known back when I planted that first white clematis 6 years ago that they do better in dappled shade.
But when I planted the white one, there were still trees on the ends of the patio that helped out in this regard.
More Gerbera daisies are beginning to bloom.
They look like baby fists at this stage. And then open up like a baby asleep with its hands relaxed and open.
Larger Visual Of The Patio Garden:
The blue raised bed is full to overflowing.
Now that I’ve been approved for a home loan, I’m wondering how I might get some of these plants dug up and transplanted somewhere else should I find a place to move?
Pondering A Move:
What I’ve come up with is the possibility of some of you here in town being able to help me. I will divide the huge hosta and Lamb’s Ear plants and share them with you.
And beyond that, I will need help packing if at all possible.
If someone here in the area would be kind enough to help me pack, I will give you what you fancy out of the decor I don’t wish to take with me. I don’t want to move a lot of stuff because of the painful condition my hands are in.
I’m really nervous about all this because I’m not in the best shape to take on such an endeavor. My daughters are busy with work.
And I would appreciate extra hands if anyone is kind enough to want to help me. I’ll make sure it’s worth your while.
Now back to the garden…
The Vining Plants:
The Mandevilla is so healthy and producing such lovely red flowers. In the middle is the galvanized tub of morning glories. Which some insect is eating.
Beyond that is the clematis that I so love and enjoy seeing through the French doors.
I do love my vine plants.
The Shasta daisies from last year are starting to bloom. They managed to make it through our rather harsh winter.
So that is the update on my container garden. I have so enjoyed creating it. Wherever I move I hope to move many of these plants with me.
Some of these plants you have gifted me over 7 years ago when I moved here. So there is sentimental value to them for me. Therefore I don’t want to leave them behind.
