Late Summer Garden Pics
The summer days are dwindling down to a precious few. Each morning I like to walk around the gardens with my cup of coffee and notice how the morning sun glances off the plants and creates shadows. Top photo is of the perennial garden with a concrete pot holding creeping Jenny. The middle photo is of the Jackson Perkins rose that I have trained to climb up to the rod iron open ball by the brick patio. This is the fourth or fifth time this rose has bloomed this summer. Deadheading the spent blossoms is the trick to repeated blooms. You can see white rose petals that have fallen on the patio.
