The cooler temps have also been welcomed by my garden and it's come back from Summer vacation to my delight & joy! When I was a kid, I hate August, probably because it meant Summer camp would be ending & school would begin again soon. I didn't notice the changing light, the resurgence of nature after a brutal Summer, the beginning of leaves turning (which is already happening here!!!) and that subtle hint of cool in the air I mentioned above. And how could I not have remembered August meant Halloween was only 2 months away?! Over the last two weeks, after noticing the beginnings of the change in seasons, I've come to love August.
With so much going on in the garden these days, I'm going to play 'show & tell' instead of writing more today! I hope you enjoy my August Garden Walk slideshow and tell me afterwards in the comments below what's blooming in your garden this month!
Until next time…
