Well, after a nice cool-ish summer, it’s heating up. Temps in the 90’s. I hate it. I’ve already bought my first sweater of the season and I am ready for some snow. Lot’s of snow. I think I have all ready mentioned that this school year did not look promising, well it is living up to my expectations. Barely three weeks into school and I’ve had one student suspended and others in in-school suspension. I need to spend some time in my garden with St. Francis, and St. Therese, and Mary and relax.
After pulling up garlic chives by the armfuls, they have almost been eradicated from my garden. Garden chives and mint are in a tie for garden bully of the year. There are a few stragglers left, creating little white clusters of brightness amongst all the green
But the highlight of the garden right now is hosta. Large spikes of pale purple-white flowers hang heavy over the garden paths. Such a hard working plant, big beautiful leaves provide edging and foreground plants for beds for most of the summer, and then in the fall these gorgeous tall spires of flowers provide waves of color.
How about you, what’s in your garden?
