My August Garden

I cut the day lilies back this week and now my beds look empty! The foliage grows out again but they won't produce flowers - they just look better! is what it is.
This wicker chair frame is on its last legs...wonder if I can get one more summer out of it? Hyacinth bean is using it as a trellis - the lithrum/lissrym (help me out here...I got it from a friend) shrub beside it has been blooming for months.
These babies re-seeded from last summer.
My teeny, teeny garden is producing well, including the flowers that also re-seeded from last summer.
This is what it looked like the end of May.
Interesting clemitis seed heads.
And the Lime Light hydrangea? Me. Oh. My!
Already, I smell a difference in the air, the dawn comes a half hour later and I feel that cocoon-ish feeling come on me. Oh my...s.i.g.h...why does the summer have to go by so quickly?

ps - tell me how it's possible to a COLD in August?!

...happy gardening!

It's "Lythrum" and yours looks wonderful. Mine seems to bloom once and then it's over. I wish I could get it to continue blooming. That hydrangea is to die for. Totally cottage!
