A flower post

Although summer is winding down,(is it just me or is it a lot colder than normal?) I still have flowers blooming in the garden. And here's a few........

A large stand of Joe Pye Weed.
A couple of different colors of helenium
Japanese Blood Grass
Garlic Chives in front of Autunm Joy Sedum
And a late bloomer, False Dragonhead
And speaking of the yard, we mowed it today, and I did a final season spraying the paths for weeds. We had a very dry August, and the yard looks pretty worn. But that's common for this time of year.
And a long day at work today. I start at 8 am, and won't finish till about 7 pm. And Thursday is almost as long. But that's what I need to do to have a 3 day weekend! So see you Friday!


  1. The variety of plants in your yard is a bontanists delight!

  2. I don't know if it's you or not, lol, but according to the news this morning, the Farmer's Almanac is predicting colder than normal winters for the next three years.

    It's been 3 or 4 years since we had any snow here on the coast.



  3. Our mornings have been just a little the 50s. The days are fantastic. Sunny, warm, wonderful!

  4. Crazy thing is that up here as well, the last two weeks or more in August, we never received a drop of rain, so after rain nearly every day since June, then nothing and of course everything started to turn brown fast.

    Yesterday I was walking the dog and was very surprised to see a Great Blue Heron in our neighbor's pond. I have never seen one around here, although we have many white cranes around which are also enjoyable to watch. I thought it was quite a coincidence after reading your earlier post. Your gardens are still beautiful!

  6. I love your garden.
