Katrin in Garden

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!
