The hosta/Rudbekia combination is dynamite! Lovely work, as always, Sweetheart. Now you get to figure out what to do with your leftovers - not a bad problem to have.

I'm very happy that I got the new bushes into the ground as early in the season as I did. There are a lot more plants that I would like to have transplanted; but, we are 8-10 inches ahead for the year, in rain. Our clay doesn't dig too well when it is wet. It is either too wet or too hot (or I am too lazy!)


Wet clay is horrible to dig in - that is what I had at the other house (the clay part, sometimes wet, sometimes not). I am fortunate that I don't have much clay, although a lot of the areas are wet much of the time.

We are way behind on rain. I have had to water most of the new plants 4-5 times a week. I've even had to water the no-mow zone a couple of times. In the last 3 weeks, I have gotten rain once - for about 1-1/2 hours.

Good grief! I didn't realize how behind you are on rain. All of that watering gets old fast!
