Not so this week. The nursery's plants looked like mine: droopy, burned out, and very sad. Even our weeds are suffering from the intense heat and humidity we have been experiencing here in Western Pennsylvania.
My little baby dahlias with the most gorgeous colors have given up the fight and need to be pulled out and tossed. My hanging basket is dropping leaves faster than I can sweep the porch. And every day, whether I water or not, my impatiens look completely shriveled up, like they have been spending time in the desert.
So what creative thing can we do to rescue our gardens? I'm not sure, short of watering more which I am doing.
Would love to hear any creative tips you might have to help us all save the plants and flowers we have tendered this summer. It would be a shame to lose them all.
