After 30 days with only a few drops of rain, we finally received a half-inch on Wednesday night. Unfortunately it’s too late for many of this year’s flowers.
I was away for 10 days and couldn’t keep up with watering, so many of my annuals surrendered:
And I hope I haven’t permanently lost any of my perennials. I’ve never seen my astilbes this dried up before.
Thankfully there are several more chances of rain over the next 3 days.
The trees, shrubs and perennials better drink it up because soon a killing frost will come, and then it will be time to hunker down for the winter.
