It is bursting at the borders. The day lilies are still blooming, the brown-eyed susans and coneflowers are coming into their own, and the mop head hydrangea are beautiful.
We have had enough rain to keep the perennials blossoming and spreading so I have been rearranging as any good gardener does. 🙂 I’m not sure why I rearrange every year to get it just right and then I find myself doing it the next year as well.
I think it has something to do with continuing to divide plants until I have a lot more than I really need. So, I’ve been sorting and keeping the best for the beds and moving others out to the property borders. It’s a good thing I have the edge of the wetlands to sink the extras in because that way I don’t have to dispose of them and when someone asks for perennials I just dig them up. Works out pretty well.
The raspberries are finished, and the blackberries are ripening. Tomatoes are set on and some are ripening, and the cucumbers, yellow beans, and squash plants are all producing. Fresh veggies at every meal – now that’s a good thing.
How does your garden grow? Do you have just the right amount of plants or do you have a few extras as well?
Happy gardening. 🙂
