how i wish it would rain…

the garden didn’t suffer at all during our absence, thanks to the devotion of my daughter-in-law and son.  however, they’re going with us to disney world next week, so husband has been quite creative installing timers on hoses that stretch like tentacles among the plants.  the drought conditions here are dismal.  we water the gardens and shrubs, but the lawn is brown as leather.  i hate to see our water bill next month, but whatcha gonna do?  i’m a little worried about the blueberry bushes, especially the male, that we planted this spring;  the lace-cap hydrangea that we moved to make room for the a/c unit is getting too much sun and will have to be re-moved this fall.  there’s still plenty of beauty, though…
