August has been beautiful!

Wow.  Usually August is dog days, hot hazy humid.. its not over yet but it sure has been gorgeous in my neck of the woods.   The daylilies and dahlias continue and  phlox are blooming.

Faith’s phlox – these are from friend Faith’s garden.  They are  extremely fragrant and don’t seem to get mildew.


My grandmother’s white phlox – these came from her garden


Care for something tropical?  The elephant ears are getting pretty big and the succulents are thriving


These hardy hibiscus were here when we moved in


When the weather is this nice, dinner al fresco is in order


The veggie bounty is coming


Tomatoes, beans, peppers, eggplant, blueberries, squash, cukes, herbs…


And a platter of daylilies…
