Just a few picks of my Southeastern Tennessee garden in early August!
Did anyone go to the World’s Longest Yard Sale last weekend? I did! I posted my stats on Facebook, but for those of you who aren’t my Facebook friends here you go: We drove from Signal Mountain, TN to Dunlap, Tn – that’s a 22 mile drive – it took us 7.2 hours. We stopped innumerable times and walked a total of 8.62 miles. Spent $17.00. It was fun, but exhausting.
On Sunday, I walked around my yard to take a few garden photos. My big hosta blossoms are starting to open, and the black-eyed susans are still going strong, but starting to wind down a bit.
We planted one heirloom tomato plant in a pot this year. It’s coming along nicely.
Rosemary always flourishes in my yard. My problem is that I don’t keep it trimmed back enough and I always end up with a leggy bush instead of the cute mounds that I see on fancy garden photos.
Oakleaf hydrangea blossoms are brown, but the new leaf growth is bright, spring green!
Sedum Autumn Joy is getting ready for it’s blush of autumn color.
