I, originally said that I was 88% done but when I think that I have been working on this since Christmas of last year...the number should be 98% but I still have lots to do. If you don't follow my blog...I have been working on a massive rose garden for months...a very ambitious undertaking and I am in the last steps of completion.
This isn't really part of the project, but the pumpkins are starting to flower.
Male pumpkin flowers.
It's been really hot...heat index of over 100 each day despite the temps being in the low 90s or high 80s. Yesterday, it rained everywhere BUT here...ever look at the weather radar and see the you are purposely being missed? Joking...but not really.
Very cloudy and humid. Behind the chairs is a mums, hydrangea bed. That needs to be screened, mulched, weeded, and irrigated...not in the order.
Closer view. I had started to screen but the heat was just too much.
The back of this rose bed has a little more screening and mulching. This section will be irrigated today.
Problem is I have to run the tube across grass. I have learned the hard way, that ...don't do that. You can't mow.
I have three sections that I have irrigated and three to go on the wired manifold.
Tubing running through the rose garden
Morning glories I planted along a fence...not related
Some are on battery powered watering systems and some electrical.
Sod stapled the tubes in place.
Once complete, I need to cover this very weedy trench that the pipe is buried.
Wouldn't know I recently cut these zinnia. These are on battery powered timers.
This section needs to have drip irrigation vs sprinkler..because you see more weeds than roses.
Wild morning glories?
This section will also get drip vs sprinkler.
