Late August in the gardens
Clematis 'Princess Diana' is a late-bloomer this year. Earlier, it developed wilt and I cut it all the way back and applied a copper fungicide. Surprise! It grew back and bloomed.
I'm growing glads this summer too. I enjoy them as cut flowers as well as in the garden.
This is one of my tranquil places in the garden. I love to relax on the patio. The view is unbelievable! :)
Tomatoes are abundant this summer, just as they were last year. I eat some, freeze some, and give some away.
I enjoy a wide variety of colors of phlox in the gardens.
Lobularia 'Snow Princess,' french vanilla marigolds, and pansies intermingle. I've never seen pansies bloom all summer long before.
A type of primrose, I believe this is also referred to as a sundrop.
The Mystery Plant - can you guess what this prolific self-seeder is?
Have a blessed day!
