There are a few things I love about the month of August. First of all, I am usually on vacation! The weather in August is pretty typical: hot, hazy and humid. The humidity breaks with violent thunder storms which blow in and out just as fast. It's during the month of August that the garden is at it's fullest. The annuals in pots or in the garden have filled out with loads of colour. The vegetable garden is providing a fresh summer feast and the perennials have grown again. Summer garden chores consist of weeding and pruning and especially deadheading to prolong bloom. There is always something to do and gardening helps to keep you in shape with all of the bending and reaching, (another great side benefit!). Here are a few photos of my garden this summer. Enjoy!
