It’s been raining here lately. A Lot. I really can’t complain; this time last year we were deep in a drought that we thought we’d never get out of. So even though the rain was a bit…excessive, I’ll take it over no rain for three months straight.
Since it has been raining so much, the plants have been going a little crazy. I had to trim the hedges. In July.
Before the haircut:
I don’t know what kind of holly these stupid things are, but they drive me insane. I knock them back to about 2 feet high in February, and they try to swallow the porch by August. Trust me, it was not my idea to put them there, and if we owned this house, I would exact revenge on them.
This snail decided it liked my passion vine. Or it liked not drowning in the dirt. Either way, we have a lot of unusually colored snails around here, and this one was blue!
The backyard, slowly drowning. The grass grew about 6 inches in a few days.
At least everything in these pictures is green. It was a struggle last year to keep things alive. I hope everyone gets enough rain, and that your hedges don’t try to swallow your house.
