Well that was fast. August disappeared just like it always seems to. We had some really hot days and some lovely days. We dad lots of company so we enjoyed the garden many times. The weeds grew, the flowers bloomed, we harvested the veggies. Such are the lazy hazy days.
You may recall that last fall we “hoicked out” the lilac in front of the fence since it was taking over that area. My thought was to put the dahlias there. I think it was a success.
These dahlias are over 60 years old. My Mom and Dad grew them in our garden in Connecticut and my siblings and I have kept the tubers going for eons.
You may also recall that we removed a huge part of the forsythia hedge last fall so that we would have a better view of the meadow from the new porch. I think that was a success too.
The garden isn’t done yet – soon there will be mums, asters, foliage turning and fall clean-up.
