The garden is an oasis right now. Past the flashy richness of June and July, past the heat of August, and back to the cooler mornings of late summer. Plenty of flowers to cut for the house right now, and some early deadheading done to aid with fall clean-up.
|Sedum spurium 'Dragon's Blood' - blooms in August. One of my favorites.|
|The liliput zinnias are going strong. They seem to have a second wind now that it's a bit cooler.|
|A pink salvia. I bought it as an annual, but this is its third year. Wish I knew what it is.|
|Love the dark purple ageratum. It's probably annual, but one can hope ...|
|The Ladies Mantle blooms in the fall for me.|
|But the hibiscus is still going strong.|
So much to enjoy. Not enough time.
Happy Labor Day!
