You know you have been spending too much time in the kitchen when you spell
flour and mean flower. It is then time to head out to do some deadheading and enjoy the beauty of the flowers.
The Anemone is such a dependable perennial.
All summer long it grows healthy foliage and by mid July it is sending out long graceful stems and buds that reach above all the other flowers. I prune this plant to keep it in check because it takes over if I let it.
The Sedum is beginning to color. This perennial also is so easy to grow and every spring I transplant its babies to areas that need a bit of filler. In August it begins to develop large heads of tiny blossoms that open up late August to display it's Autumn color.
Here is the garden from the other end. You can see the Anemone on the far end.
My hanging basket is still loving its sot under the Tulip tree.
At this end of the garden the Sedum has taken over when the Peony finished it's spring display.
This summer the roses did exceptionally well. With a dry August the pests stayed at bay and the leaves stayed healthy and the buds have opened beautifully once again.
This rose is a David Austin Rose called Abraham Darby. I have two of the same rose.
It's fragrance is so beautiful.
Behind the rose is the Limelight Hydrangea blooming.
I love Hydrangeas and wouldn't mind an entire garden.
This time of year I usually plan what colours I want to plant my annuals next spring.
Are you still enjoying your Summer garden?
OH....and did you notice my new template?
I was having Blogger troubles and was not able to make any changes to my colours etc and finally tried to change the template. Once I changed to a new template...the colours were happy to change again.
It was a 4 hour exercise on Saturday that I did not need since I was working on today's MGCC post at the same time...
and that is when I decided to go take
flour flower photos.
So...try the different views on the top left hand corner...
and let me know which one is your favorite.
Now that I've made the switch to the new template...
I'll be staying.
Happy Labour Day!
All for now..
