I like to stack elements...and camouflage a "Pop out" from the sewer line....lots of help from Mr. P on this one!!!!!

More seashells and succulents.

I love the blues!!!!!
It has been so hot that inspite of watering, the cucumbers are "cooking" on the vine instead of growing!
How is your garden this August???

Lovely photos and so inspiring. My garden is doing nothing - it is unhappy and un-sunned. Have to find a different spot - that's that joy of a "new" house - you are not sure what the gardening will be like.

I saw a horticulturalist on Good Morning Arkansas this week and she said the plants are indeed "cooking" in this intense summer heat! I know the three Endless Summer hydrangeas I bought to plant are suffering! I'm trying to keep them in the shade and watered, but they look pretty miserable!
Oh, Lila--by the way--are you familiar with Sue Spargo (quilter)? I see that she is going to be teaching at the Rabbit's Lair in Rogers this fall. I love her wool applique! Have you done any wool applique?

A true long term garden is always evolving.
The "instant" gardens on TV are deceptive, I think. we need a show which visits the sites 18 months later to see how they have "settled"!LOL!
