Labor Day

Well, there went summer.  I finally caught up with the weeds since we had a break in the heat and humidity, and I actually felt like gardening for a change.  I should have taken a photo of the piles and piles of crabgrass, hogweed, etc.   Yuck.  There have been a few bright spots the last few weeks despite the groundhogs and rabbits ruining some of my planned color combos.


Kim’s daylily and the bottle tree


The new porch is looking spiffy  – need to thin those lilacs


Yarrow and Faith’s phlox – with an interloper to be removed


The Brugmansia bloomed – I think this is year 8


The humidity has brought out lots of cool mushrooms


I grew a heart shaped tomato



 This funky dragonfly showed up


And these guys returned…..

That’s it for now.  I’m looking forward to cooler days and better gardening weather.  We still need to landscape around the new porch, thin out the lilacs, prune back the forsythia hedge, transplant stuff, etc. etc. etc.
