More August Ramblings

It is dusk in my garden as I write this entry, The air is full of the sound of the buzzing and chirping
of insects. This orchestra of late summer consists mostly of crickets. It is one of my favorite times to just sit and listen. The garden is past peak, overflowing and the weeds are safer now from the compost pile. Notes will be made and pictures taken so that plans can be made for next year. As the weather cools some annuals will try to perk up, but as the days shorten the garden goes slowly downhill. Now is the time to step back and enjoy.


  1. Thank you for this lovely tour around your garden- enjoyed it so much! beth

  2. Beautiful garden! Everything looks so lush!

  3. It is nice to have that break at the end of the season. You don't have to "slave" away, because what difference is it going to make anyway. Winter will soon be here. Just sit back and rest on your laurels.
    Love the blue arbour at the top of the picture. It just jumps out at you.
