Despite the lack of rain, the front garden looks pretty good. It is overgrown and was due for a make over but because I was gone at the prime time to tackle it and then the drought set in, it's a good thing it was left alone. Because it is so crowded, the small plants are shaded and doing well. The tall ones are the drought resistant ones so they thrive too.
As bad as the hostas look this year, they are still sending up flower stalks. This one is in a pot and will get planted in the back garden in the fall before the first frost.
For the last few years I have been taking cuttings off my coleus plants in the fall and keeping them alive in water all winter. Then in the early summer I plant them in pots and they become big bushy plants. I could plant them in pots in the house but I'm usually too lazy to do it and they stay in the jar with a little water to cover the new roots for 7-8 months.
I got some cutting done for my kits yesterday but no sewing. I think I need to spend a day working on my Wonky 1-5 pieces.
