It’s been lovely and hot and humid the past while, with no change in these conditions expected until September; in other words, it’s still summer! I was out on my early morning rounds the other day, coffee and camera in hand, while the fog was still laying low. I spotted a few early rising bumble bees, some robins catching their worms, a tomato horned worm in the tomato patch (it was relocated to a more appropriate place…) and I thought I’d share a look at the side garden. It has a small patio I laid using flat limestone slabs found on the property; it’s just large enough for a bench and a chair. Around it I’ve crammed a huge assortment of bulbs, perennials and shrubs. (You’ve likely seem individual plants from this garden in previous Sixes over the years.) The Propagator hosts this weekly garden blog theme – six things in your garden – and you can see gardens from around the world if you visit his site.
And finally, below, the view from the north end of the patio looking south. It’s quite a peaceful place to sit with a cup of coffee in the morning. Until the mosquitos find you, anyway! Have a great weekend everyone!
