July was a far better month for the garden than we had any right to expect. We had more rain than we're used to seeing, and the Japanese beetles were sparse this year.
June has been interesting in the Tea Room garden.
It's been a challenge to try to keep up with weeding. We've had so much rain this month, that pulling the weeds isn't difficult. Finding a non-muddy moment to get out there, while still taking care of our guests and family, is much more of a challenge. And of course, while all that rain means the plants haven't required much attention beyond a little pruning, dead-heading and a bit of fungal treatment, the weeds have been growing like mad.
