Ground is Dry

Yesterday I had to move a couple hostas and I was surprise how hard the soil was around their rootball. Like a hard rock. Then after looking at the corner bed I noticed that the ground is real dry & cracking. So this morning I lugged the hose around to water my shade plants that really don't care to be so dry. Of course this means that since I spent an hour wresting with that hose it will rain this afternoon.

My dwarf delphinium that I started from seed this spring is blooming. Such a nice array of blues. I really like this one and its so short that it can be towards the front of the bed. Hope it overwinters.
