As Summer Slipped By

Just a few shots of summer, as she began to slip away ~  

Kentucky Wonder Beans planted by little gardeners and their flag displayed:

I don't plant many red and white flowers, but these petunias have been showstoppers this year:

 A new Rose of Sharon, and two sedums - stars of the late summer garden:

A closer look, including a honeybee in the sedum:

The first Aster to blossom, along with a late blooming Phlox.  Look at the buds on that aster!

Geraniums and Impatiens:

The back forty of the property, looking south towards the house:

And finally, one of the few sunflowers of many planted this year that survived the onslaught of rabbits and woodchucks to bloom wildly around the farm...this single stalk had twenty-two blossoms all at once!

The flower beds around the farm are winding down, but the trees are stepping it up to put on the show that begins our Autumn season....are you seeing the change of colors where you're at?
