Pullin' in the Reins

Well our dear friend Mother Nature is toying with us and she turned off the rain. On top of that she turned up the thermostat. Now gardening friends of mine we have to "pull in the reins" and pull out the hoses! Day in, day out, we have to take the "heat off "and saturate, as best we can our plant's root systems. So with a smile on my face (see head shot), we carry on keeping Mohonk lookin' fresh. (Wish us luck!)

Looks like the Extension Dutchess County is looking fresh. Their gardens on Route 44 in Millbrook are looking quite snappy. Here I photographed three sections of the demo plots, ornamentals for sun, for shade, and an edible landscape!  Well done...well labeled ...well mulched...good for them!

Speaking of "good for them," how about this Hydrangea arborescens 'Annabelle' growing in front of a local pet food store.What am I doing wrong?
