Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day; June

June 15, 2009


Blooms are not abundant here in my San Antonio garden this June day. According to the local newspaper, the past 21 months have been the driest in recorded history. The use of sprinklers and irrigation systems are to be curtailed to Stage 2 restrictions today.  IMG_4409

What that means basically, is that each household can irrigate one day per week between the hours of 3 am and 8 am and between the hours of 8 pm and 10 pm. With daytime temperatures in the high 90’s that is just not enough for all but the toughest of plants.IMG_4413

I am able to supplement with a hand held hose or buckets of water which I do regularly for my vegetable garden. But since I am basically a lazy gardener, the rest of the garden is having to tough it out and blooms are small, few and far between.

To see more of today’s blooms from around the world check out May Dreams Gardens.
