|August just seems to slipping by so fast. I panic because I think that this is the end of summer. I know the fall is a beautiful time of the year but I know that I am going to be back in the sweaters and the long pants and before you know it it will be my least favourite season of winter. I just want to hold onto the warm days for a little bit longer. |
My mosiac today is looking at what is happening in the garden now. It was overcast yesterday (Saturday) and the backyard was so busy with the birds. I caught Mrs. Cardinal, a baby Downy Woodpecker and a cute little Chickadee in the camera. Other delights is the Cosmos Bon Bon that I started from seed from Renees seeds in California. It is a double. The white snapdragons are doing well. The Gaillardia had a busy bee on it. A basket of the vegetables out of our garden. The cup plant is looking good. The blue datura plants are as big as trees and now that the seed heads are breaking open the plant will be cut down. They are not something you want to reseed around. One is nice but a whole bunch of them is trouble. This pink echinacea caught my eye rather than the purple ones. The sunflower looks good but this plant is aggressive and I spend all summer pulling out what I do not want. The white Cleome are a nice annual to add to the summer garden. There you have it for this week. I hope that you are enjoying the waning days of August.
