The heat this summer really did a number on our little garden, but it did survive! Bill watered it frequently and continued to improve it by adding some perennials. It took forever for the seeds to grow - and the north side of the porch did better. I think they were "wild flowers", as Bill said it was just weeds coming up! Maybe, and they did spread, but they have lovely small blue flowers and I love them. The south side is still being slow, but we have had several pink blossoms on the one plant, and a couple of other plants are coming up, but so far no blooms.
The transplanted hostas did not fare well in the heat, but are now coming back, slowly. The Naked Ladies came up, but didn't last too long in the heat.
With the heat, the black raspberries died before they were barely ripe. We did get a few very small batchs, just enough to gobble up. The blooming season was short-lived. The large rose bush kept growing in height, but no blooms during the heat, but now with some cooler weather, there are five new blooms. The bushes with the small roses only blooms in mid May to early June, so its season was short lived, but I did get several blossoms to put in bowls in the house.
