We are officially in the last week of August. Where did the summer go? The nights are getting cooler and the days are getting shorter. The garden still looks nice, although a recent all-night rain has the phlox looking a little ragged.
The rudbekia below is in it's prime this week. I'm not sure of the name of this one, as I got it from my friend, Rita. It's such a happy little plant and I love the way the buds look when they unfurl.
but I call them Brown-Eyed Susans
I wasn't sure what this one was called. It was given to me by a friend. Thanks to Alison at Bonney Lassie, it has now been identified to me as Malva sylvestris or Mallow!

The 'Stargazer' lily. No explanation of this plant required. It's just plain beautiful and smells wonderful. My husband says to leave them on the outside of the house though. ;)
Happy Fertilizer Friday and Happy Gardening!
