Early morning in the garden of drought and weeds

The dog and I have this informal agreement that when I'm home during the day we will walk through the garden....well, many times. Possibly we go out more often than once an hour. It works for both of us. I enjoy the garden: take the odd picture, pull the odd weed, do a bit of spot watering. Jigs likes to sniff. A lot. Also possibly chase the odd cat. We're usually not out for long periods 5-15 minutes on average.

Since we've been back from Florida it's been hot with highs mostly in the upper 90's or low 100'sF (35-40C). The weeds had encroached during our absence and despite a few hours work Saturday I had been despairing of the state of things. As we, Jigs and I, entered the back on the west side early this morning, still cool, things didn't look so bad. The light was funky but the weeds were out of the frame!

I love following along and seeing daily doses of gardens.

Thanks for your postings! From one obsessed gardener to another!
