Take a surreal tour of our August garden


I don't think I do enough walk-a-bouts with the camera through the garden. To remedy this, I did just that the other day and here you go. A few things that caught my eye to share with you. Some you've been seeing here lately, others not so much.

For this time of year, I'm pleased to discover things are blooming. My work over the past few years to plant or cultivate the garden for late summer blooms and interest is working: it is the time of year we're actually living in the garden the most, and makes sense.

These photos also proved to me it's time to do some editing and clean up. Talk about blowsy! Or is that blousy? Big and bodacious, yes.

Beautiful pictures! I try to make sure I have seasonal interest in the garden, so that all seasons get a chance to show off. However I've been noticing that this time of year my garden has less impact than I would like. This must be changed. A little seasonal focus would be appropriate! Good job on yours!

I did the same thing several years ago after noticing how damaging the spring rains were to spring flowers and how I hated being outside during the cold, rainy, windy early days of the garden.

A summer garden is what I want when I can be outside to enjoy and tend without all the bare spots that spring bloomers leave behind.

Love your slide show. I need to get me some shoes to plant up with sedums or something. Yours were adorable.
