My Poor Garden

When I returned home from my trip to Europe, I found that my garden was a disaster.  Here in Ohio we have had an unusually hot summer with below average rainfall.  Even though my house sitter watered the garden, many of my moisture-loving plants looked very sad.  In addition, the deer had a great time munching on the "salad bar".  They ate the leaves of my hostas, leaving nothing but the stems behind.  (My fault.  I should have told my house sitter to spray the hostas with more deer repellant.)

So even though the first frost is weeks away, I have started early to clear out the garden. I have already chopped most of the hostas down to the ground.

Oh well, better luck next year.
