Summer has been long and hot, fall color is already flaming in the borders that surround the property. The vine maple, witch hazel, rugosa, and a Japanese maple just out of view all contribute to the fall tapestry.
This is the time of year when I look at the garden and quake. Because, there are endless tasks to be done in short time and frankly it looks impossible. 😦
Starting with shearing back the Grosso lavenders to tidy mounds.
