I can't believe it has been another week in the garden. There have been lots of changes and not all for the better. We had a huge storm early Wednesday morning and many of my plantings suffered damage from the heavy downpours. I will be cutting all of my Carex back on the north side of the house because most of it got flattened. The Persicaria on the south side also lost several large stems, bent to the ground.
The Centranthus in my alley garden is leaning heavily, but I hate to trim it back since it was in full flower. I am thinking if I don't the cars will be rolling over it. My shorter plantings seem to have come through the deluge much better.
