This is the "mid point of the Kansas gardening season" update. That time when it's hotter than heck and my lack of weeding and watering discipline begins to show. These petunias got leggy so I whacked them off and they bloomed again. I wish all gardening conundrums were so easily solved.
The hardy hibiscus continues to have one of it's best years ever. Alas, it will soon be over.
One of the front porch succulents bloomed.
The zinnias and salvia, planted as stand ins for the empty spot where the cherry tree was, are in full-on bloom.
The oak leaf hydrangea blooms are turning. So delicate and pretty.
The first of the morning glory's are also emerging.
I close this report with the disturbing news that something came up on my back deck last night and decided to try a nibble of the succulents that are in the light therapy unit (which is working well for them by the way). Rabbit? Squirrel?
What other kind of critter would be on the back deck eating my succulents in the wee hours of the morning? If any of you are teeth mark experts, click on that picture and examine it closely. Then get back to me with your guess.
