August is here and my garden starts a new phase. It is one of my most favorite months of the year, it is so warm and sunny which I and my garden flourish in.
The “no I am not ready for Fall” statement is in response to all the pumpkin, autumn decor and Halloween ads popping up in my email now. Be gone from my sight and let me enjoy the height of Summer in peace! Why rush it? Summer will be here for nearly 2 more months let’s just enjoy it shall we.
The first blooms of the daisies are done and they have been dead headed and ready for re blooming. But in their place for now are all the Echinacea’s.
Pow Wow Wild Berry
and Common Coneflower.
These have really filled in and I need to move so around the garden. And I want to get some of the Magnus, I love how huge the flowers get on them.
My roses are all still blooming away, despite the heat spell we have been having.
Tea Clipper David Austin English Rose
Vintage Ground Cover rose that I do not know the name of but I love so much because it takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’ plus it will root readily. Each little rose is no bigger than a quarter and it produces these gorgeous bouquets of white non-stop until the weather turns cold. Queen Elizabeth
The Oriental Lilies are beginning to perfume the garden with their sweet scent.
The pure white one seems to be more fragrant than the pink but they are both gorgeous.
I need to plant some in the Secret Garden so it can be as equally sweet…lets enter through here..
The Morning Glories are taking over the arbor benches..
filling in nicely, but maybe a bit too thickly…believe it or not there is a climbing rose under there somewhere.
Hyde Hall David Austin Rose is still blooming away along the back fence with even more Morning Glories.
I gathered this Canterbury Bells up from off the ground (I failed to provide it proper support and it was overran with California Poppies) and though it looks a mite beat up it still adds a pretty purple touch. I will dead head it good and it will keep on blooming and maybe perk up even more.
The Black Eyed Susies are still abundant and vibrant..
There is a lot of yellow and golds in the garden…Golden Celebration David Austin RoseIf I went on any longer this post would not load well so I will stop here with one last photo of my new favorite coffee mug..it is just Me.
I hope you enjoy your Summer days (whats left of it) and I am so glad you could join me on my garden tour today…
