There's still plenty of flowers out in the garden, although I can feel the garden slowing down. I've been slowing down myself.
|Astrantia 'Vanilla Gorilla'|
|A bee enjoying some Coreopsis|
A few Hydrangeas
|Allium wallichii ex. China|
|One last daylily|
|Gladiolus 'Ruby' which has flopped into the foliage of Sambucus 'Black Lace' -- I love this hardy Gladiolus so much I just bought a second one for this bed from Far Reaches Farm|
There are a few Dahlias flowering.
And a few tuberous Begonias.
And a couple of lilies.
|Lobelia 'Queen Victoria'|
|Another Lobelia with pink flowers, flowering in the pot ghetto|
|Cyclamen hederifolium, whose flowers appear before the leaves, kind of a harbinger of autumn|
Starbucks has announced the pumpkin spice latte will return to its menu on Tuesday, August 27, the earliest return ever. Isn't that kind of a harbinger of autumn too?
