Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

New Faces

 The gardens change with the summer heat.  Flowers are spent and leave the stage making room for new faces.

Here are some of them in the Perennial Garden now.

The Pond Garden is wild!  It's hard to keep it tamed so I'm not trying as hard.  The iris have seeded themselves so thickly around the perimeter and now I'm finding Joe Pye weed volunteers in new places.  The water lily that I thought would never grow seems to love it location.  

The frogs are getting big.  Can you see it in this photo below?

The cat tails are returning.

As I write this the pond is getting fresh water as we endure another strong downpour.
