No posts in June?

It’s been an odd gardening year, although maybe you always say that. Too much rain and then boom into the hot season, which I hate. I can barely tolerate the sun any more so chores have been intermittent. Or not at all. Things seem to keep themselves going anyway but my enthusiasm has waned.

Blooms are greatly delayed this year, or didn’t happen at all. We finally noticed the hummingbird tree (really called a Butterfly Bush or Buddleia Bush) has finally come to life. The tomatoes and pepper plants on the deck are already starting to show fruit. I notoriously hate in about two weeks when things start dying, so maybe that will be slow to happen as well.

Here are some pictures from June.
