This is the time of the year when things start to let us down. Hanging baskets and containers aren’t as good as they were in July and yet it’s only August. All the annuals should still be looking good, but they aren’t.
We have been plagued with duckweed on the pond’s surface again this year. This tiny green floating plant is a real nuisance and if not treated completely covers the surface so it’s impossible to see the fish.
