WHAT SEASON ARE WE IN ??

It is the beginning of August and for us it is the middle of Summer but the heath and drought have ruined a lot of plants so now it looks like Autumn.

It is the second year in a row, I think we should start looking for plants that tolerate more heath and more drought.

AMELANCHIER
BURNED AMELANCHIER

I took this picture 2 days ago and now this tree is almost bare, all the yellow leafs have gone with the wind.

GERANIUM MACRORHIZUM

My gernaniums look all death, luckily I know they’ll come back when we have had a lot of rain and lower temperatures.

FERNS
HENS AND CHICKS (sempervivum)

Even the hen’s and chicks are burned !!!! I have put most of my plants in pots in the shade but as we may not use the waterhose cos of the drought, I have to water them by hand, a huge job.

Have a great weekend all !

MY POOR GARDEN

My poor garden, burned to a crisp !!! We had such hot weather lately, up to 38 C°, and a lot of my plants are burned. And as we have a severe water shortage as well we can’t water the garden. It breaks my heart to look at it ! It looks like Autumn even though it is only the beginning of August !!
