Dry and UGH!

My gardens are so dry and sad-looking. I want to move things but I almost don't dare-- anyone else want to complain about the weather??? I miss the rain!

Yes, I'd be happy to complain. As it does SO MANY TIMES, all of the recent rains have gone around us, to the north and to the south. I'm in central Oakland County. I've had basically not a drop of rain for all of August. Up in parts of Lapeer, St. Clair they've had several 2-4 inch rainstorms. They had well over an inch to our south on Saturday, all we got was drizzle.

It has been so hot and dry, my garden looks terrible. Most of my rose bushes are half bare from blackspot, even though I sprayed regularly. Nothing looks like it usually does, with the exception of my shade beds. I am afraid to see my water bill.
