    Default Front garden April 19th and May 21st

    Trying to have something in flower all the time but May is the best month. Three years ago it was only a level lawn. Really don't care for grass.

    May be a few snails, birds get most of them, encourage that with the birdbath. Watched that for a whole day last summer 403 visits. No slugs, don't have those here, too many centipedes. LOL

    That is really nice! I'm fighting a battle right now keeping everything green here. The temps have been in the upper 90's (97 F today 36 C) today with high humidity and heat index. No rain to help out so I feel like I'm constantly watering something that is bent on wilting anyway. We are only dropping ten degrees in the night.
    The vandas seem to bed watering four times a day at least. David has been doing that.
    It has been so bad that I told David we might eventually move to Seattle, Washington.

    We've have had the same problem with heat and lack of rain. Since April 1st rainfall has been about 30% of normal. I can use rain and aquarium water for the orchids but the gardens are costing a fortune with tap water. We have to pay for the water coming into the house and pay the same amount again for water going out because it is assumed that its going into the sewage system and has to be treated. Seriously considering having a cistern under the greenhouse when I build it.
