« Late summer. | Main | Mid-July. »

Hello August.

Hello August! Summer is flying by so quickly. Here are some picture of my garden, taken yesterday in the evening. (The picture above is a strong contender for "best garden picture of 2017", I´d say).

I was so hesistant to create this new border at first, but I am so glad I decided to go for it. It needs a bit of tweaking but it is so pretty already in its second year! (I need to give the lavender a haircut).

Blue is my favorite color.

Into the veggie garden.

Apparently I planted a black chili plant (huh).

My gorgeous dog.

Zinnias still going strong.

This is all looking exactly like I imagined. Very happy.

Except the tomatoes did catch the blight, but I hope they´ll ripen fast enough now to have a decent harvest still.

That´s it for today. I hope you are enjoying summer!

It's all so beautiful. That first picture is indeed a best garden photo with the light filtering through behind the tomato houses. You must feel so proud of what you have created. And proud of Ludwig too with his glossy coat and happy walk.

I love your garden and Ludwig is beautiful - he reminds me of the Irish Setter I grew up with.
