Its been a dry month here in Toronto and all the lovely plants were starting to look pretty parched. The drizzle the past couple of days has really perked things up and all the colour is thankfully coming back.
On our evening walk last night, Whiskey and I enjoyed all the lovely blooms coming out again. Rain really is a good thing 🙂
When I see beautiful gardens like this, I start to crave a place of my own where I can create gardens to suit my tastes. I really do think that flowers can make a world of difference of how you feel when you come home.
There are a few of these hibiscus trees along a running route that I sometimes take and I absolutely love seeing them. I’ve seen some of the blooms get as big as my hand. Insane.
Back in my garden, the flowers I lovingly planted in June were starting to look a little worse for wear, but now they’re flourishing in the rainy weather.
I dug out most of the nasty weeds one night this week and now everything is looking nice and purdy again.
Some of the flowers seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed the drought and grown even higher in spite of it.
I really need to cut some of these and bring them indoors for a lovely centrepiece, but I just can’t bring myself to stop them from being so lovely outside. What a dilemma!
