We have been quiet here but we haven’t been without work. More on that later. In the meantime here are some photos from this spring and summer.
Well I came up today to start prepping for fall but besides a chill in the air it still looks like summer here.
Many of the plants are still untouched by frost and the geraniums are still budding. I can’t even take any leaves as they are still predominantly green.
It looks as though Pat’s grass garden did well over the past few weeks and even the hollyhock is still growing though I have been able to collect some seeds. We will see what the next few weeks have in store when we are both able to get here and start the end of summer shut down.
It has taken some time but my holyhocks have finally produced blooms.
For some reason I thought they were going to be dark purple but these have more of a tequila sunrise quality.
In any case they add a little something to the space beside the back porch.
I have also planted another one this year in behind this one. This label says it will be pink, purple, or yellow so we will wait an see.
I found this neat, interactive infographic on bringing wildlife into the garden and I thought I would share it.
The calendar says otherwise but it feels like fall out here.
There is a distinct chill in the air. I guess it is time to put the patio furniture away in the shed and tidy up the potted plants. Mulch the beds and put everything to bed until the spring.
How could it have been Labour Day just two weeks ago?
