I don't want to be burned again, and I use this term loosely! I was like the mad waterer but I know many people lost large amounts of landscape material including some large evergreens and trees.
Our weather had turned cool in fact too cool in certain areas and I am hoping that fall does not go to the extreme as that we experienced in summer.
I am really beginning to love the dark foliage in the garden interspersed with greens and variegated foliage and especially the colors of the perennials flowers in the spring summer and fall.
We forget about snapdragons but manytimes they come back and bloom from spring through fall.
