Thirsty, and Not

Some before and afters of very thirsty plants. Starting with bamboo...


...which curls its leaves when things are dry, especially in direct sunlight. When in shade or in the evening and leaves stay curled, that's a very thirsty plant!

Ten minutes after getting water though...


...they are back to their normal, gorgeous selves!


Persicaria seedlings are making this once-bare patch of ground something to look at, but the maple roots suck everything out of the soil:


A little water helps, at least for a while:


These are growing slowly, but that's okay by me!


'Lady in Red' hydrangea is not the most drought-tolerant of plants:


But how can I resist keeping it hydrated?


It's so beautiful!


Finally, a before/after shot that isn't so pretty and also is not caused by lack of water:


That spider plant looks so perfect there in the tall pot...


...apparently the deer thought so too! I've never had them eat these before! What's the deal?  (Maybe the fact that it was at nose level?)

Too bad about that spider plant! If I don't immediately hang my up when I bring them in for the winter the cats will nibble on them.

Amazing what a little water can do :-)
