My Garden in Late July

This Hot Dry Weather has made it Challenging to keep everything looking good.  Lots of Watering! I took a few Photos early this morning before it gets too hot.

I love the structure in the first photo, and all the other items you have repurposed. Your blooms and chickens are looking good, too. I have volunteer black eyed Susans in my vegetable garden. I am thinking about moving some to the front yard this fall or next spring. Maybe I could just put some spent blooms where I have room for them. I just need to be careful not to let them take over. Do yours spread a lot?

Thanks Jenny!

Sue, The black eyed Susans do reseed quite well- I have too many, but with this dry weather I am glad I let them grow- I have been enjoying the flowers. I try to remember to dig them out where I do not want them.
Thanks for you comments!
