This is it. It's the last day of summer for 2013.
It was a good summer overall.
We had pretty good weather with
Don't you love sunflowers?
I planted several seeds in the spring from a packet that I bought last year but only 2 actually grew up.
The one above is about 3 feet high.
Then there's the 'Jolly Green Giant'!
See them side by side?
It must be at least 9 feet tall.
It's right up under the eave of the garage. I've tied it up in 3 different spots so it won't break but now I don't know where it's going to go. It's run out of room!
The hydrangea is loaded and so pretty now. it went from white to pink the past week or so. I've cut a lot of blooms to dry in the house for bouquets. Love them!
This purple aster is doing beautifully this year. I bought it 2 years ago as a potted plant in the fall and put it in the ground. Last fall it didn't bloom as it was in a shaded area. Earlier this summer we had some trees removed and this plant thrived in the sunshine.
Autumn Joy Sedum is putting on it's annual show.
Look at all the leaves on the ground! The trees are fading and not too colourful yet but are dropping their leaves already.
What are you doing on this last day of summer?
I think I'll pull some weeds in the vegetable garden so they won't get turned under and come back again next spring. Do you suppose it's a lost cause? :)
Enjoy the weekend ~ summer's last day and autumn's first.
I'll be back on Monday with photos of my autumn decor.
I hope you will stop by.
Have a wonderful weekend!
