August blooms





The August gardens and flowers are full and gorgeous here right now.   Although I don't have the best flower beds, and they are full of weeds it seems, the flowers are putting on a great show lately.

Summer is winding down in the garden which makes me sad.  I love the colours that the gardens provide to the landscape in our world.....everywhere you look....gardening is a huge hobby and is so good for the mind and soul.  Do you agree?



Can you tell I like purples and pinks?


L to R....pink phlox, blue Endless Summer Hydrangea, purple coneflower
Cosmos, Morning Glory, Liatris
Rudebekia, Tickseed, American Revolution Day Lily


Our neighbour's "barnyard daisy" on our old fence.  

I am linking to Judith's blog "Lavender Cottage" for Mosaic Monday.

Have a wonderful week ahead.

Blessings,
Pam

  1. Ha! I can relate to your comment about weeds, Pam. Isn't it nice of the flowers to draw attention away from them?

    I like all the purple, pink and yellow in your garden. I think my favourite photo is the first one; it must be because of the colours and the wood as well as flowers in it. In my opinion, it would make a beautiful card!

    Hope you're enjoying that new deck!

  3. I love all your photos, Pamela, and the old garden fence is wonderful! I tend to favor pinks and purples in the garden, too. Yes, I do agree that gardening is wonderful for the mind and soul; I've always found it very therapeutic. :)

    Visiting from Mosaic Monday -- have a great week!

  4. Yes, I completely agree.
    Your collage of garden blooms is beautiful. Those are the colors I seem to gravitate to in my own garden.
    I also love the old barn fence paired with the pretty yellow blooms. Lovely!

  12. I use mostly pinks and purples too Pam and look for darker hues of them for autumn. The weathered fence with the barnyard daisy is an awesome photo and I've pinned it for my 'Simply Inspiring' Pinterest board.
    Thanks for linking to MM.

  24. All those blooms are gorgeous! You should have plenty of photos to pick from when Miz Vee starts up her note card party again. As we head into fall, I will miss the summertime flowers, but I won't miss the heat and humidity.

  25. What beautiful blooms and photos ! Yes things here are also in full bloom but sadly some things have come to an end as well but fall is in the air and that means lots of colours still and fresh cool air and breezes . Today is a perfect day her in Southern Ontario warm sunshine cool breeze birdies & crickets chirping with the occasional Cicada buzzing I love it ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  33. I used to be an avid gardener, but must confess that mostly just enjoy looking back at photos I've taken of garden tours. I especially appreciate your first and last photos in today's postings. The flowers look wonderful as part of the "picture" you composed with your camera.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Gorgeous array of colours....your collage could be a quilt design!

    Happy Tuesday!

  35. Such pretty blooms, Pamela! Yes, it is evident that you prefer pinks and purples, but the yellows are a beautiful contrast, I must say! Enjoy the show, as autumn is not far away!!

  38. I love the old weathered wood with the pretty daisy. I don't garden much any more but when I get back to Florida, I'm going to buy some mums for inside. I've missed having some pretty flowers inside this trip. Enjoy your week! Sweet hugs!

  39. Every year I say the same thing: "I have entirely too much pink in my garden". I really need to introduce another colour! I love the weathered wood paired with the pretty yellow daisies you have here.

    Thank you for stopping by my place and leaving such a lovely note. Blessings,
