The garden suffered during the drought last year. I lost all my currant bushes and many of my flowering perennials. This year I decided to accept the fact that my region is drier than it used to be, and I put in some soaker hoses to help with the watering. If I want to keep my garden alive and vibrant, it’s going to need a little more help from me.
On the positive side, the wisteria on the front trellis really took off and we got some beautiful hanging flowers under the arch, which was the dream I sought to create. I can’t wait to see it expand over the whole trellis. The peonies also had a great bloom.
