Well, we are certainly experiencing the hazy and humid part of summer, now with both feet firmly planted in August. I feel abit melancholy when I look at my flower gardens. Many of the blooms are no longer at their peaks, and look like they are fading. Ah, summer; a most delicious time of year, yet passes so quickly.
I know many of the fruits and vegetables are in high gear, and I'm smiling about that. We go to a local Farmers Market, and the tomatoes are looking and tasting good. The lettuce and zucchini's are also delicious. I could go on...yummy!
However, for now, I will show you photos of our flowers gardens, slightly overgrown by all the rain in June. Th Sedum which normally blooms in early October, now looks like it's almost ready to show its pretty coral color - two months early. :) You can't argue with Mother Nature ....and who would want to?!
A pink and white cleome that reseeded from somewhere. I think my neighbors' garden.
Purple Grass beginning to feather - so pretty!
Melopodium Million Mile have really taken off with their large round mound of cute yellow flowers.
So, make a glass of ice tea, put your feet up, and enjoy the month of August as much as you possibly can!
