Weekly Winners :

 Not many photos and lack of variety, I’m afraid, for this weeks Weekly Winners ….

It’s been very hot lately and we have had no rain .. everyone else gets rain, but for some reason it usually bypasses our house … it looks like it’s coming and then drifts off to the east or to the west. 

We see rainbows towards the east when the sun starts setting in the west ..  

… but no rain … a spit and spot sometimes but not enough to revive my plants …  

Hydrangeas hang their heads …

…. seedlings struggle under the heat …

…. ground covers wilt and curl … … the lawn is patchy…

… and then at last the rain came on Friday …

… filled the bird bath with water ..

… and watered the garden .. yay !!! 

… including THE BEANS !!!   Do you remember the beans planted by Bradley and Connor  in October …

… look how they have grown – despite the heat!!  They wouldn’t have grown like this had they been in the ground, but in a trough, I made a point of watering them .. only because I have the herb, thyme, in-between, which is now struggling under shadow of the beans …

I’m hoping that now the beans have gone full circle, I can remove them and let my thyme flourish .. – they are haricot beans … you need a huge pile to make them worth cooking!! .. and I have a handful 🙂  – but in the meantime they are welcoming the rain … .. … as we are …

  1. I love that last bean picture!! The curl makes me happy for no other reason than it exists. The drooping hydrangeas are also beautiful in their weakness.
