Late August In The Garden

The gladioli that have started blooming are my second plant this season that has decided to bloom completely out of its normal season. First it was a bluebonnet and now the glad’s. I’m not complaining, they are beautiful to look at.

Hyacinth bean vines have started taking hold on a portion of the fenceline.

The view from where I was checking the hyacinth beans from. I need to fill in some plants in the back where other plants, annuals, have died back.

Another view from standing down near the beehive; you can really see where gaps are here.

I’m excited the bulbina has decided to rebound and flower after being severely neglected and then eaten by deer.

Brown-eyed Susan flowers blooming, thankfully, after a devouring by the deer earlier in the summer.

And my little bit of happiness, the blackberry lilies with their blooms and seedpods.

Here are the bees, still bearding a bit though temperatures are cooling off. I need to get in there this weekend and check things out.

Summer is starting to wind down but we’ll still have heat here for at least another month. At least it seems as if the humidity is tampering down a little…for now.
