In lieu of sharing my "interesting" thoughts I will give you a little garden tour, successes only:
A volunteer Balloon Flower (I love volunteers)

This guy's teeth light up at night. He's solar LED!
Butterfly bush doing its thing
More tiki fun plus purple coneflowers. Hey Mel, it's not too late to set up the bird bath.

The sign says "It's five o'clock somewhere" and is accompanied by little metal sunset, hammock and fruity cocktail.
This is the grocery store rose from back in March. I'm so relieved that it's still alive.
Lady Emma Hamilton
Our so-called "walkway"
The irrigation system I set up actually works!
