Well, well. Summer is winding down, making way for fall.
We could use some rain. I should be spending more time out in the garden right now. But I'm so tired of looking at the smoke from the forest fires that has gathered in our valley. I need some blue sky!
OK, enough whining.
Not much going on in our garden. You really have to get up close to see much. But there are some blooms happening.
We have a few anemones showing their faces. Ones the chickens haven't dug up. Yet.
( I planted pink ones at my daughter's house and they're looking great. Of course she doesn't have chickens.)
And this is prime time for asters. See some nice ones at Kasey's Korner.
The morning glories are in their stride.
A nice coleus in a container on the back porch.
We planted 50 gladiolus bulbs. About two bloomed. Probably not enough sun. Which sounds crazy for southern Idaho, trust me. But that's one of the consequences of planting so many trees.
Good part is the place we bought them from give a dozen free blooms when you bring your coupon back. This is one of the two that bloomed for us; lovely.
'David' phlox and Alma Potschke working it. Check out Grace's Alma Potschke. Very nice.
'Heritage' rose usually hangs in there until the snow flies. I like that.
(I thought Garden Girl's Double Impatiens were roses.)
And the Russian sage is hanging in there. What a carefree plant.
Janet has a nice pic of it also.
