August has brought with it the sounds of insects in the yard that are droning out all other noises from their constant calls.
The birds have grown silent and are staying in the woods more from the hot dog days that are upon us.
In the woods the Woodland Sunflowers are in bloom.
And the early blooming Dwarf ‘Forever Pink’ hydrangea has been trimmed back. Sorry about the shady picture.
‘Raspberry Truffle’ Echinacea is looking a little better since the caterpillars have stopped chomping on it. I love this new Echinacea and I wish I could get a true picture of its wonderful pink-rose color.
On the other hand ‘Pow Wow Wild Berry’ is looking just terrible and nothing like I thought it would be. I will give it another year and it will be moved to the Woodland bed where all the misfits go. LOL!
The ‘Summer Gloxinia’ is still in bloom.
These are a few of the sights in the garden today.
I will be joining with our Glenda (aka Tootsie) and others for Fertilizer Friday. Join us in Flaunting your Blooms.
