Summer sliding away

What glorious weather we’re having.   It’s quite crisp so I have been able to do some much needed weeding and transplanting.  The daylilies are almost done but the dahlias are going strong.  Much of the garden slows down this time of year  –  those lazy days of summer linger a bit longer in the garden too.

Thalictrum rochebrunianum – this delicate plant adds a real fairy garden feel in the shade.. the flower scape is five feet high
