Today I began my day by taking pictures of what was actually growing in my yard. Not much in August out here, let me tell you!! But here is what I came up with:
I cut several gardenias and they are in my kitchen, smelling so heavenly! Then I saw just a few roses from Brenna's bush. (Each girl has a rose bush we planted when they were born. Brenna's is yellow, Lauren's is pink.)
Then, just some Daliahs in a small pot. They are so faithful to come back up every year. It's like greeting an old friend!
I decided to cut the hydrangeas, in hopes that they might bloom again. They were looking a little sad on the bush this year. I don't know, maybe because the PUPPY kept digging a hole right by it's roots? Sigh. Anyway, they look great in an urn in the house. Usually I like to let them turn from pink to green and then wait until Sept. to cut them as they tend to turn the most beautiful mauve. Maybe next year, when the puppy isn't so much a puppy!
What grows in your garden during the end of summer??
Have a great day!
p.s. here's a look at the puppy. He is the one on the right. I know, how could something so cute be so destructive. HA!
