What is is about summer time and water hoses? I love to take the time to water all my plants and to check on their progress. We replanted our front beds this summer and they are growing so well! I have babied them along the last two weeks. Giving them extra water along with the sprinklers seems to have done the trick.
The nandina, impatiens and hostas are growing well. My friend, Barry, brought mulch for us when he picked up his own. It is nice to have a friend with a truck!!
Our Japanese maple already has new growth as well!!
This year I purchased one of the light weight hoses that draws up on its own when the water is turned off and I have LOVED it. It is perfect for the light watering that I do and it is easy to handle and put away. I am so glad that I do not have to wrangle with a length of rubber hoses!! Little things make me happy!!
