This time of year the garden is filled to overflowing.
I have been watering a lot the last few weeks and am grateful for the rain we've gotten the weekend. Highs are expected to go back up to 100 this week.
Plants take over paths, as the strawberries and Lemon Balm have done in the vegetable garden. The corn we have harvested from the garden has been delicious, very sweet.
I planted Marabar spinach next to the tripod and hope it has time to get going before the season ends. It's supposed to like hot weather.
Even the new plantings by the drive above the house ~ American Beautyberries, Prairie Roses, rugosas, mints, and Blue Mist Shrubs ~ are filling in.
Meadow Beauties are in bloom in unmown places beside the drive and next to the woods, looking as they were strewn there by some magical hand.
I finally have good stands of Phlox 'David' growing by the house again since the move.
Monarda 'Raspberry Wine'
The daylilies are finishing up. This is a Bachman seedling, not sure of the parentage. I love the ribbony kinetic look of the petals.
I do not want to be without these Rudbeckias again. I love their warmth of color.
This week I am joining Tracie at Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Flora Thursday.
