Nothing says ‘Hello August’ like day lilies. Despite my ongoing battle with the deer, I’ve managed to see a new crop of beautiful day lilies emerge from the warm summer soil.
Day lilies, astilbe, monarda and coneflowers, the hallmarks of mid-summer blooms.
The deer, squirrels and chipmunks have made sure I’ve seen few roses this season, but thankfully they’ve left a few mainstays to admire.
Soon September will bring an end to the abstract painting that is the 2020 garden. Best I get out and enjoy nature’s canvas while I can.
