Back into a heatwave and wildfire warnings.
Yesterday I did some deadheading – the lovely delphiniums are finished, trimmed off some of the salvias with their spicy scent, deadheaded lots of day lilies.
Today before 10am I hand-watered all the containers and all the gardens in shade – House, East, Boat (the uprooted irises are looking a little browned around the edges), the east side of Centre, Road and just around the corner into the south end of Drive. The rest I will do this evening when the sun goes off the garden.
