Need A Rainmaker!


Just about four weeks with no significant rainfall. Its all being kept alive with a garden hose now. Last year one of my Clematis looked like it was going places so I attached one trellis on top of the other. The following photos shows you that its intent was achieved. I also included photos of the first iris in my garden to bloom and just now the water iris by the grotto pond has started to produce flowers.

To the right of the sundial you see Beebalm coming up. which means that the hummingbirds will be arriving soon.

Your pergola clematis is spectacular K. If it doesn't rain soon I'll be over there with a couple of buckets.
