I haven’t been updating the 2018 Island page as much as I should this spring and summer but I’d like to give you an idea what it looks like right about now. My Island is the oval shaped garden that’s enclosed by the driveway – about 60 feet long and 40 wide, with some decent sized trees along the back side.
It’s awash now in purples and whites, mainly, with splatches of yellow here and there. Unlike the past few years we’ve actually had some rain this July which has helped some things – sunflowers, evening primrose, Echinacea – grow really really huge. This weekend it needs weeding so as soon as I’ve done uploading this batch of pictures I took around six this morning I’ll be out, in long sleeves, bug spray and a sun hat, pulling and dropping. Stay cool, everyone!
