Twenty-seven. Twenty-seven whole weeks! I am amazed by how long the garden has lasted this year! What a bounty! What a blessing to be able to enjoy it this long.
I confess, I haven’t done much this week. I think I watered once, but we’ve had quite a bit of rain, and humid weather, so the soil in the pots is still pretty moist. I’ve stopped dead-heading, as I figured things would be dying soon and why cut the blooms when the plants won’t have a chance to make more anyway? So I’m letting things die down now and just enjoying their last displays. The perennials I’ll be cutting back after we have a good frost, and the annuals I’ll be plucking out and tossing. I wish I could have a compost pile here.
Snapdragons again. Sorry to keep repeating them, but they’re the most prolific and showy right now. And, I love the colors. Pink, yellow, and white, hello!
The Chrysanthemums are starting to show off though! I was getting a bit concerned that they weren’t going to bloom much before frost but they seem to be coming around. Hopefully they’ll fill out in the next few days.
I was playing with my photo software again. Some of my shots turned out on the blurry side thanks to the breezy afternoon we’re having. I also figured out how to play with the settings on my camera so I was messing around with that, too. This first collage is all flowers.
Duh. You know, in case you couldn’t tell. *eyeroll*
This one is mostly the trees around here. They’re still an interesting mix, despite losing so many this Summer.
That’s my garden this week. Still growing! How about yours?
