Not alot going on in the garden this week, still hot and dry. 😦 No significant rainfall so the garden is a bit tired and worn out looking. And usually it looks pretty good until about August, but this summer has been a beast. Regardless some perennials thrive on the heat such as the Russian Sage. It hasn’t grown very big this summer but has been continuously blooming for over a month now. Limelight is just starting to come into the spotlight and is looking really good. I’ve had a bit of leaf loss from the lack of rain, but this is a not a whimpy Hydrangea by any means. Pentas are great summer annuals and this pink one is really putting on a nice show this month.

Update: I wrote this post yesterday but as of today we got a nice rain shower this afternoon which means 5 of my 6 rainbarrels are full again. 🙂
