Welcome to the first day of a new month, the day I share a Gardening Oops that I've witnessed or committed myself. While pondering possible subjects for this month's Gardening Oops – GOOPs for short – I kept running into garden blogger's block. No topic felt right. Nothing came to mind that worked as an interesting GOOPs subject … NOTHING. This writer's block reflected the general hum-drum feeling I've had of late about gardening. After a very busy May and June designing, planting, coaching, and gardening for clients and the extremely uncomfortable heat July brought to Connecticut, my energy for gardening and garden blogging came to a screeching stop. Like these hosta leaves, tired and burned from too much heat and sun, I was burned out on gardening.

Evergreen shrubs provide most of the color in my Connecticut garden for this Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.
