Monday In Bloom

What a gorgeous day it was Sunday!  I was able to finally get out there and get a bit of work done in the garden, yay!  Got a lot of deadheading done, got some weeds pulled, maintenance things that are necessary if you want your garden to look halfway decent.  Thankfully the humidity was on the lower end of the scale so it didn’t get too uncomfortable working unless you were out there for a long time.

With the daisies and lilies coming to a close, some of the other plants are getting their chance to shine.  The Artemisia are just thriving, and now the sage is blooming, and the speedwell is really getting nice and bushy, too.

Now that’s what I’m talking about!  I think the bit of a cool down we’ve had in the last couple of days have really allowed the plants to thrive.

It just feels like things have finally come into their own this year.  It’s late in the season, to be sure, but as the saying goes, better late than never.

I feel so relieved.  Things were going so slowly, and with all the pansy loss, I was really concerned that something was wrong.  And there was.  Crazy Chicagoland weather!

Only a couple of buds left on one of the lilies.

The promise to be a great ending to a great show.

That’s how my garden’s growing with just a month left until the Autumnal Equinox.  How’s yours doing?
