The good news???? Nothing's died yet. Woohoo!!!
Actually things are moving along well. My petunias are blooming in every container.
The geraniums are starting to bloom as well.
The vinca are doing well. In fact I didnt notice at first but there are not only hot pink and white in this container, but light pink as well!!!
With all the watering going on, my azalea bush that I thought had seen better days is actually blooming!
It's still really scraggly but I've got flowers!
The impatiens only have one bloom
but there are SO many ready to pop, this container should be full of flowers by the wknd.
The biggest surprise? My tomato plants. I'm doing a before and after because it's amazing the difference.
This has already reached the top of the cage!!!! The blooms from last week fell off, really no surprise because they were there before I planted them, but I've got a couple of new ones already starting to come up.
The only problem with all the watering is that all the dormant weeds and stray runner blades of grass are starting to pop up. Next week will be a week of clearing out the weeds and *maybe* putting down a layer of mulch, if for no other reason than to make it look nicer.
We did have a couple of scares, two of my mexican petunias looked like they were going to die, but after a couple of days of double watering, they seem to be doing much better.
Will my plants continue to progress? Or will (insert animal here) decide to dig a couple of them up?? Stay tuned for the next episode of
*insert Don Pardo's voice here with dramatic music*
Thursday in the Garden.
Thanks for stopping by!
