August Garden

After the rain.

















After an extremely hot and dry July, August has finally brought us some much needed rain. I hope your gardens are getting the rain they need too!



Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Thanks girlfriend! Your garden is gorgeous. If only we would get rain here. Unheard of this time of year. Our front lawn is getting sort of crunchy. Need to run the sprinkler a little extra. Your photos are perfect. Share what camera you have. I am hoping it is heaps better than mine because my photos never look like yours. They are like I am really there!! Great job.

Thank you Lynne for your lovely comment on my blog today! I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and say that! I am so use to the hoards of people hitting my other blog that I forgot how much work it takes to get another blog up and running! Your photos are gorgeous and I am going to add you to my blog roll on both my blogs. So you may see my comments either as "As I Dream it" or as "Average Girl"... both will be me!

Cheers for now
Tracy

Your garden looks so fresh and green, unlike mine which is suffering from lack of rain.

Hi Poppi Linn,
I love your pretty garden! Your tiny tomatoes remind me that I want to plant some of those next year. So nice that you were able to have some rain. We have not had any significant rain this summer at all. But, we haven't really needed it. We have had far more than normal for the last two summers, so this summer has been perfect here in Manitoba, Canada where I live. I have had to be careful about watering my garden areas, though.
Hugs, Cindy
