GBBD: August 2012
But it is not all doom and gloom. This August has been most memorable because we've received almost 7" of rainfall! That is not a typo. Seven inches! And, despite this significant amount of water we are still in severe drought conditions.
So lets look on the bright side, it is Garden Blogger's Bloom Day and time to celebrate some late summer blooms. Be sure to hop, skip and jump over to May Dreams Gardens to participate in the blooming party.
The most prolific bloomers in my garden today are the mushrooms! The heavy rain and warm temperatures created the perfect conditions for mushrooms to sprout.
