Late Summer Garden

I love the way the gardens evolve through the season.  The past few weeks we’ve been busy with other projects and we’ve given them little attention. Today we were out there giving the gardens some much needed TLC.

We also added some new plants, from our friend Ruth’s garden. Ruth has been tending a delightful garden tucked in beside her warehouse/studio building, but now train track expansion beside the building is threatening her garden. Fortunately, we have some garden space right now, as we’ve recently removed a hedge between our property and the property to the north of us, leaving excellent potential for new gardens.

The fall gardens are not so showy as they are in high summer, but they instead offer maturity and rich earth tones.
