Late Season - Full Glory

August 29, 2014

Usually the 'full glory' time would be a little earlier than now, but maybe only a week or two.   The most colourful time in my garden has always been the late summer.  That's when the perennial phlox come out, the rudbeckia and coneflowers are still out and a few daylilies are hanging on.

Here are some pictures taken over the last few days.

Have a wonderful long weekend, everyone!

If you have a question, I'll respond on your own blog, if you leave me the link! I'll also answer questions here (in case anyone else is interested).

I had to start 'moderating' the comments because I was getting so much spam, so if you notice your comment doesn't show up right away, that is why.

Happy Gardening!
