Between torrential rains and searing heat it's a wonder we have anything growing in the yard. The daylilies bloomed quickly, then started dropping flowers. How disappointing. Our false blue indigo (from our friend Faith) is doing quite well but needs to be split at the end of the year. Tobacco plants keep cropping up everywhere around the yard. This one should do quite well. An obedient plant, also from Faith, has taken off and will need some discipline very soon. Finally, the swing set from Gram and Pappa that Uncle Greg helped put together is still holding up. It needs some help in a few places, though.
