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!
