When you get to know your plants you water those that need waterIng well and skip those that will get by without it.
I too water as woody does.
Been very very warm today. Cloudy now and rain due Tom pm ....lots of it apparently.
Cut grass, staked remainder of heleniums and dahlias, cut down some lupins,'planted Baptisia, and cut back astrantia that has been wonderfully floriferous ( flowered well too ) to leave a dome of green that allows the soon to flower rudbekias to be seen. Rudbekias have loved this season with lots of growth and flower buds. Will contrast well with frikartii monch, salvia Amistad, salvia patens Cambridge blue and leucanthemum broadway lights soon and set off a large actea Brunette.
Pruned senecio sunshine too....the only " grey " that I allow to flower
So, been a busy boy today .....even got a large pasty in and a huge cream choc eclaire ( for its vitamin content )
