This has been such a busy week around here that the garden has been totally ignored. Which is what I have felt like doing lately. The gardens around here are dry again with the return of hot weather and no rain. So it is back to the hoses.
I have noticed in the woods around the house that some of the trees are getting that fall tinge to their leaves already. The early start this year along with the very dry summer we have had must be the reason.
‘Heavens Gate’ Coreopsis is having another flush of blooms now after its cutting back.
The Rainbow Knockout roses have been the most reliable as far as blooming this summer.
A new climbing rose, ‘Flagstaff’, is finally just getting some blooms on it. I am going to enjoy its blooms in years to come.
Some of the other roses are getting new growth and buds for their last flush of color for the season.
The Old Fashioned Sweet peas are still blooming by the garden shed.
and the ‘Little Lemon’ goldenrod adds a little color. As for the rest of the garden it is just in a sad state. A summer that started out early with promise is ending way to fast.
In the fields around here the native flowers are putting on a show such as Milkweed, Iron Weed, Queen Anne's Lace and Goldenrod.
And I have been busy lately with the new addition to the family. I was blessed from a friend with this little bundle of energy.
Meet Aspen. Do not let that sweet face fool you this eight week old Yorkie is a terror on short legs. LOL!
Everyone have a wonderful weekend and ….
