Every year is different. We have had a lot of rain this year. Normally in the month of June my garden is somewhat starting to wear out the chlorophyll effect. In other word, our place starts to get really hot in May. So far, I have not seen a sign of global warming in my garden this year - or else it came camouflaged in low temperatures and high precipitation.
Since this has been an unusual year, I thought that I'd take pictures of the front yard before the blazing light intensity and soil-cracking low relative humidity turn the greenery into gray or golden brown.
So I stood in the middle of the driveway and took pictures of plants that surrounded me.
Trees in need of pruning.
Northwest - my neighbors carpet roses.
Roses in front of the house.
Erigeron karvinskianus ('Santa Barbara' daisy)
Have a great summer everyone!
