    i honestly think we are not going to see the sun again.. the garden and plants and veg as well as seeds have all suffered this year.. not good.

    Gardeners are the original optimists, over the years I have seen June and July just as bad with maybe a little less rain but still cold. Then late August and September it has all changed, things pick up and we wonder what it is was all about.
    Last year my tomato's etc came early and were gone, other years I have been eating my own well into October, this could be one of those years.
    Nature compensates, we will get a harvest as we always do, when is the question, and next year we will be out as soon as the New Year is over doing it all again with the highest of hopes.
    That is gardening and always has been, we live with it and take what nature gives us, every year is good in some way, the timing is a bit out is all, gardeners take it as it comes.

    It's been a cold wet spring here on the west coast of Canada,too--and added to that, a plague of tent caterpillars.That said, the salad greens are burgeoning, the foxgloves are superb, and hope springs eternal. The sun came out here for Canada Day yesterday, but now we are back to showers. The end of the week looks good, though.

    Lovely photos, Tazman, your clematis are impressive, and I particularly like the cannas.

    We are having a little heat wave at the moment, and I was deligted today to see the first blooms on my iris ensata.[sp?] I had forgotten what they were supposed to look like!

    Very Nice Pic's of your iris ensata.That is the first time that i have Sean, iris ensata.      You said you are having a heat wave, we could do with some of that.The plants are not canna. The are Abyssinian bananas, the canna are the bottom right of the Photo.

      Good Luck And Happy Gardening.
