Geese squawk over head as I watch the black cat’s head turn up to follow the sounds. The tropical storm has passed taking with it the high humidity and leaving a drenched garden. I love the tapestry of foliage shown in the photo of the shade garden. It needed a good drink.
No tornadoes here or flooding. I’m grateful. Also happy for the drenching as it’s been a very dry summer. As I write I look to the deck and the container arrangement with the coleus that continues to delight me on this early September day.
I tried something a little different this year with colues, pink lantana and petunia, which have now finished. I like the way they tone with the cushions as well.
When I look over the deck railing or out the laundry room window, I see that the vine ‘Sweet Autumn’ Clematis (below) with its star-like white flowers blooms. It’s that time of year.
Views of the gardens from within my house are very important to me. That’s why the lower level laundry room has a view of the gardens captured above. I get a treat every time I do the laundry.
I also planned the view from the deck. I make a point to walk to the rail and look often. Happy Sunday everyone. I’m looking forward to a bit of garden tweaking–deadheading and just enjoying.
