Garden Diary
September 16th, 2009

The Iris that needed more sun are now tucked in around the peonies at the back, and I hope this will be a happier bed for them.

Apart from transplanting I only had time to vanquish a few clumps of cutch grass and diminish the size of one of the mint plants. But I will be back!

The sedum are looking glorious now. And the white phlox has had a little burst of adrenalin, - lovely in their purity.



One of the generous sunflower plants that feed the little birds, who all rise up in a panic at the sound of a footfall.



Caspar and I wandered down the road to find the doors wide open and welcoming at another Sunflower Bar.



The apples grow red and round and rosy as they ripen....



Down the aisle a translucent light and the laden trees invite one to tread the soft green carpet, and rustle through the golden grasses.



The faintest hint of fall in the scarlet maple trees...



and the autumn asters.



I pick a few of the hardy yellow daisies that have been in bloom since June, to add a little cheer to the house.

Hildreth and Charles--thanks for visiting my blog! Your's is so lovely.
You are very blessed to be living a life where you get to "smell the flowers" evey day! I hope for a future where I too live "at the back of my [daughter's] horse pasture!"
