What's the end of the year without some sort of retrospective? I often find them incomplete at best and often dull, but since this is a gardening retrospective...
The first picture is from April, when the rose Climbing Old Blush and the bearded iris were in bloom. This is the view from an upstairs window of the big perennial bed. One of our pastures is beyond the garden, and the neighbor's pasture is on the right.
The second was taken in July. The blob of color is Monarda "Raspberry Wine".
The third was taken in late August, just as the Bidens were starting to open.
The fourth is from the middle of September, when the Bidens were in full bloom.
The last was taken in October, when the Bidens were done, the Swamp Sunflowers were in bloom, and Climbing Old Blush was blooming once again.
