My gardening is at a stand-still. It’s too hot to do much gardening. Each evening that’s cool enough, and not all are, I go out to my tiny garden and pull a few weeds, deadhead some flowers, and tuck new strands of the mandevilla vine around the next rung on the trellis. It’s simply too hot and sticky to garden. I can do a lot of planning, though, and am I ever!
The next thing I plan to do is dig up the very invasive asparagus fern near our front door and replace it with another varigated ginger. At least the ginger will stay in one place. I’ve been finding little sprigs of baby asparagus fern all over my yard. It has to go.
The only flower I have that seems never to give up, no matter how hot or cold our weather is vinca. Even that hard freeze last February didn’t kill it. So I will most definitely be putting in more. Vinca it is available in white (shown above) hot pink, (shown below), pale pink, red, and purple/blue.
