Heading out to the County Saturday with hopes that the rain barrels have been refilled by the rain we've had overnight and forecast for today. Last weekend the Ninebark was so wilted - leaves and whole branches wilting, curling up - never before like that - I dumped a couple of buckets of grey water on them. Rudbeckia in several spots were dried up and crispy - disintegrating when touched. Whole Compass Plant flower stalks browning and dying. Rattlesnake Master falling over. Sedum Spectabile flower crowns falling over. Not to mention Birch and Witch Hazel leaves yellowing and falling as if it were October. I've been watering as much as possible but the old well isn't what it used to be.
