Too Hot To Garden

Clipping some of the plants on the East side of the house that were a little too wet from all the rain we got so far this month, I was glad to see the vibrant color on the Crocosmia.  Refreshing and full of life, it's vibrancy is hopefully a sign of things to come. 

Trying to work in the yard only during the morning hours, I made arrangements to go to my son's and help dig a few hostas so I can then bring them out to my daughter's later in the week.  My son is 1 1/2 hrs West of us while my daughter is 1 1/2 hrs East of us.  Although I've done the entire trip in one day, now that we have this heat and humidity, I decided to break it up.

Yes, 14 pots filled with different varieties will head East soon.  The remaining 12 varieties will be dug this Fall.  And as usual, I learned about a new tool while at my son's.  It's called  Root Assassin.  Now I just have to locate one.  Sadly our Home Depot did not have them but after watching that thing in action, I'm not giving up!

seeing, saying, sharing...

I agree it is too hot to garden and here in Florida it is too hot to do anything except puddle in the air conditioning

I was curious about a root assassin. They have them on amazon.

Glad you broke up the trip in this heat! This plant you photographed, I have never heard of it! It is very exotic looking.

That would be a lot of driving, it has been hot and humid.
Your Crocosmia is pretty. Take care, have a great day!
