Oh the roses are in their glory….and now the thunderstorms have arrived, so tomorrow will undoubtedly be a dead heading day!
The clouds were super cool before the rain started, and the air heavy, warm, and thick. Now everything is taking a beating as it gets a drink.
Pouring, pouring, pouring. The boom of thunder and flashes of lightning. The road resembles a river but the willow tree is estatic.
There is so much to be done in the garden. But I do love to putter around. But the rain is also feeding the weeds. So that will be a big job for the weekend.
Oh! And yesterday some friends and I visited David Culp’s Brandywine Cottage. His gardens are beyond fabulous. I will have a whole separate post on that once I go through the photos.
And this weekend the Philadelphia Flower Show opens, and it’s brand new format outside which is more like the Chelsea Flower Show in the UK. I have not been excited about the Philadelphia Flower Show in years and I’m really looking forward to this.
