Actually, this garden looks a lot like it did in mid-July except that the geraniums and iris have finished blooming and the ornamental grasses are bigger. There are lots of long-blooming perennials here, and the garden looks different depending on which direction you view it from - which makes it interesting but also a challenge. And sorry about that kiddie pool in the way - it's just a part of the reality of my backyard! (I managed to crop the tent out.)
Above: the last of the peonies is blooming, an unknown variety of light pink. Sigh. It's a bittersweet day when the peonies are done because I look forward tot hem all year. Also painted daisy and nepeta blooming in this photo.
