Around The Garden

I have been watering like crazy this week (90 degree temperatures) because everything seems to be in distress.  It is supposed to be a little cooler for the weekend.

I have all my tomato plants put in including some sunflower seeds nasturtiums, cucumber and basil seeds.  There is that new circular tomato cage that I am trying and a lean-to cucumber structure.

I bought two new perennials for the south border (Shasta Broadway Lights) which I have had before without success.  I don't know why I am trying them again, but they do say zone 5, one more chance.  I also bought Lobelia Cardinalis for the shade area under the Pagoda Dogwood. 

The Knockout Roses look so much better in the back than in the front. I am beginning to believe that friend of mine that said it is bad feng shui to have thorns in the front of your home.
