The Middle of August in the garden

August 15th, 2012

There is a lot of greenery in the garden these days.  This town garden is tucked into a small space between trees and neighbours and so there is a lot of shade in the garden, and I have noticed that the phlox in the front garden is very unhappy, - as is the sedum.  A garden I pass on the way to get the mail has Autumn Joy in it that is flourishing in the sun, and twice as large as the plant I brought down from the hill garden and planted along the picket fence, not realizing it would be so shaded.  After the year of experience there are things I will move around in the fall, - or in the spring in the case of the sedum.

On the other hand, the flowers which I planted in the raised bed and which get oodles of sunlight are doing famously!!!

Here they are soaking up the sun and even making the Chinese Underground Railway customers welcome.  Look for them, - they are scattered throughout the bed.  The Smilebox below won't work and won't go away.  Recalcitrant creature......
