I know Relic… where the heck to did August go??? To be honest, the whole summer just flew by. But it certainly was a hot one. I’m definitely looking forward to some cooler temps and slower days in September. Maybe then, I’ll finally get a chance to give my “gardens” a little attention.
Even so, left to their own devices, things are doing okay out there. The plants continue to put down new roots, including the roses, which are starting to put up new leaves – a sure sign they are happy.
The Physostegia is still going strong
She’s a great bit of late-season of colour, and will be even prettier next year.
The sedum continues to bloom.
While I had several clumps of sedum at the townhouse, I only brought one. It will spread fairly quickly and is easy to break up . It’s also very easy to find at the garden centres if I decide I need more. (I wouldn’t mind a few different shades)
It looks like I will get some late-season strawberries.
They have obviously taken well to their new home.
And my Hibiscus continues to give me a new bloom every day or so.
I only got to enjoy the blooms on the butterfly bushes for a short while. Just Royal Red has a few left and they are almost done.
And last, I couldn’t resist these $4 Chrysanthemums at the grocery store (Dave’s fault – he made me go to pick up something he’d run out of and didn’t put on the grocery list!)
I did bring my white one and my burgundy one from the townhouse, but they won’t bloom for a little while yet. These new ones will be planted somewhere in the yard, I just haven’t quite decided where yet.
