Time lost....




I am missing my garden......today, and everyday I have been going back to water the beds and a few pots which hold some of the more mature plants near the foundation of the house, some newly planted lace cap hydrangeas and a new Iceberg rose. I dug them out temporarily to save them from the construction battle zone !

I can feel its neglect....

You know when something loved and cared for is not quite right.... Although we have had very little rain the entire month of July, my thorough soaks with the garden hose can never replicate the rain showers from above..

or my constant hovering, like a mother...

I have felt like this is a lost summer in the garden. I hope and dream of next season and what the new changes will bring to both me and it....always grateful for the beauty it gives....
