Whether it was the stunningly early hot days of Spring and Summer, or the torrential rains that we seem to have each afternoon of late my garden does not seem to be very happy. My roses are barely blooming, many of the Impatiens have simply died off and something out there has decided to make all my Cone Flowers part of their primary food group and is busy eating them away. My usually lush and abundant yard is looking rather raggedy and sad.
I wonder though if perhaps my garden is simply reflecting a little bit of how I feel at the moment. Having the house on the market and wanting it to sell, being frustrated by the lack of success in that regard and feeling somewhat at sixes an sevens because it's difficult to move forward or make plans. Pets and animals always seem to be in tune with human feelings. I wonder if plants are too? Might explain a lot!
