The weather is heating up and rain is just a distant memory, so I seem to spend all day every day pulling weeds and watering the flower beds. These are truly Sisyphean tasks: As soon as I think I'm through, I have to start all over again.
The thumbnail rose for this month is Summer Fashion, one of the first roses I bought for this garden when I moved here 35 years ago.

I think I read somewhere that roses need one inch of rain per week, but I'm not sure how much water that translates to.
