Friday PhotoEssay – August 1st
Another cooler week, and I have to say that it was downright chilly out in the garden this morning as I was taking pictures. I almost wanted a sweater.
Here’s a look at the whole garden. You can see that certain things continue to go downhill and that we have pulled out a few more things from the MG Faves garden. I am still optimistic that the pumpkins will ripen before the plants succumb to the vine borers.
Beyond that, I thought we would take a look at some of the flowers around the garden today, since I haven’t showcased them much this summer.
The begonias aren’t quite as large as last year, but they are still pretty spectacular. I don’t think my picture does the rich pink color justice, so you’ll just have to come see them in person.
Speaking of pink colors, I did manage to get a good picture of this zinnia earlier in the week. It is one of the ‘Benary’s Giant Mixed’ which is a good tall variety for cut flowers. It is such a unique shade of salmony-pink.
Have a great weekend!
