Is everyone in a gardening slump or is it just me?
Even with the cool down I cannot get motivated.
Or maybe it is just that the days are getting shorter.
Maybe it is because the blooms are slowing down now.
Or maybe it just because I am feeling old this week.
All of the Above???? Most likely. LOL!
This is my one and only Gladiola in the garden.
It has came up for a few years now and I still do not know where it came from. One summer it just appeared in this bed.
I love the Gladiola flowers but I am not a fan of staking them up.
This is the first year that I have grown Helenium’s.
Somehow I thought the blooms were larger than what mine seem to be from other gardeners pictures. They are pretty little things though and I am in need of the color this late in the summer.
Ritz Blue Scabiosa is blooming but the Wirral Pride chrysanthemum wants to lay on top of it so changes had to be made here.I love the blooms on my Wirral Pride but it has weak stems gardeners. Are you all taking gardening notes for changes this fall?
The Bonita Rose has bloomed all summer also but it still has not turned the pretty pink its pictures showed of it. By the way I have received now answer from Wayside Nurseries about replacing it so I guess they do not want my business.
Their prices are high to begin with but I wanted this rose.
Just passing this fact along to fellow gardeners.
Clear Winged Hummingbird Moths love the phlox in the garden. They are so fun to watch.
