The weather is spectacular…. cool crisp mornings and sunny afternoons. Its very dry though, and I have had to do a little spot watering to keep things going. I’ve been transplanting things too. Many plants have just outgrown their spaces, and I decided its time to do some thinning. Here’s what things look like now.
Dahlias provide lots of color
Feathery grasses in morning light
I ended up moving these grasses today because they were taking over the space. I think I’ll put dahlias there next year
A long view.. I did a lot of thinning there today
Crabapples ripening – its a bumper crop and the birds will be happy this year
Today I visited an amazing garden in town and brought home some grapes..

I love it all! But how do you keep them all going, it’s so dry! I’m watering a lot, but nothing except my poor construction-threatened lilacs looks very happy! Your dahlias are unbelievable! As is your loyal doggy.
Most of the plants are perennials so they are old and have pretty good root systems.. they have needed water though so that’s the main thing right now.
