Happy Fourth of July

This combination appears every year, just in time for the 4th of July. Planting was unintentional, but I sure do enjoy it.




Paprika Yarrow


My day will be spent cutting back more salvias, as well as the Russian Sage so that it isn't so thin and leggy when the monsoons come, which they usually do, even in a dry year. Speaking of dry, the other day it was announced that we had received only 2.8" of precip so far this year, compared to the usual 8". That's quite a difference. That was before a good rain that we had yesterday. Just stay away hail!!! I will be happy to spend the weekend at home and not out on the road, just nice a quiet (I hope) and taking care of my gardens. Can't ask for more than that.

Just found your blog - I'm new at this game. Your conditions seem to be quite similar to mine.On top of the heat, drought,searing winds at over 100 degrees, we also have a salt problem in the soil as well as our dam water which grows saltier as the summer progresses.Non wetting soils are another challenge. Love what You've done with your garden!

Bev I am wondering if you will do anymore blogging for Colorado gardens- I need all the help I can get and enjoy your older blog entries

Granny Fran said...

Oh dear, I Googled Colorado Garden Blogs and found yours, which is wonderful. Then I noticed that you hadn't blogged for a year. I identified with you in so many ways: waterwise gardening, just lost father, retired, health challenges. I hope you are gardening and would love to see more from you.

Good post. I study something tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It should at all times be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and follow a bit something from their store.
