I did feel quite lucky to have Ellen visit. She is wonderful.
Bad seasons happen-we all know that don't we. Thank you for your kind comment!
So true,Leslie!
They are wonderful scans. I will cherish the photos.
I do and thank you.
I will have to see if there are any snippets out there now. Thank you, as always, for your comment.
There is always a lot going on but, as you know, it is spread out over a wide area. Now, after several killing frosts, it is decay and demise.
I love that name, Emily,! You are sweet.
Cindy, I do hope that someday you can come and enjoy the garden with me.
Thank you for reading about her visit!

They should be lovely...I call them 'Kathy's Colchicums' since most of those came to me from you, dear friend! Thank you.

I have one that has tiny, button white flower....yes, flower. That one is not so much a winner but generally, you are so right. Enjoy this day.

Coolness is coming this way. Thank goodness. Plus, significant rain fell yesterday on the 20th. That makes life easier.

Two weeks ago there was fragrance in the air. It was subtle yet distinct. Sweet but not cloying. Heady and beckoning. I walked into the garden to discover its source. Fragrance can be as elusive as a dream memory and... Continue reading

I find that dahlia a little less than spectacular but then I do love color. Thanks for visiting. I am coming over to see what's blooming in your garden.

Lisa: Somewhat recovered. Weeds everywhere and with the heat, who wants to weed? Time for tomatoes and squash though so all is good.

I missed Bloom Day in July due to challenging gardening conditions. Pests, drought, pests. No bother, the season moves along at its own pace. August has, so far, been a month of high humidity, heat and at least some rain.... Continue reading
