It’s as black as night outside right now, ready to storm. Before it got dark, I got out and took some pictures in the yard I wanted to share with you. This is one of our Rio Samba rose bushes with Impatiens around the base. We have two other Rio Sambas, but for some reason, their leaves are turning yellow. I’ve sprayed them with fungicide plus all purpose rose bug killer, hoping that will help them.
I love the red roses on this bush. It seems quite happy at the moment.
This is one group of phlox. I love these. They come in a lot of colors. We have a lighter pink shade and this one. I’m afraid if it rains hard, these will be beaten down.
I have to tell you about my stupidity of the day –
I checked my veggie garden and noticed the plants weren’t getting enough water. My husband came out to help me trace the water from the outside rural faucet we have out to the garden. It turned out that I had forgotten about a “Y” connection of hoses we have and it was turned the wrong way. The water wasn’t going anywhere, much less to the garden! We fixed it and tested it. On the way back to the house, Mother Nature rained on us….
