Can't believe that summer is almost over. Happy August everyone. Please post your August flowers and other garden treasures here. Below are some blossoms from my Meyers lemon tree. There was a flush of blooms in the spring, then sporadic ones since then.
August in the garden
Soils, Zone envy here with your lemons! They look really good!
Oh soils, seems with summer waining some of the best blooms are gone, but here we still have quite a few. I cant beleive I got a little asperagus from the bed I just mowed off that had all looked to have gone to seed!
And my rudbeckias.. oh my, stunning and still going strong as we head into our heat and dry time of the year.
And of course, many of my daylilies are still going great guns!
Look at all these beauties in August. So nice to be looking forward to spring dalfyre, just about the time we will all be posting snow shovels !
yardqueen your caladiums look so healthy and happy, mine always are a bit eaten and dirty looking.
Oh a lemon tree must be very pretty - wait, is that a song???
Hey BB how long will your daylilies continue to bloom, mine are likely to soon be finished.
Yardqueen, I just adore those bluebells, I wish I could grow them on my pprairie! I cant beleive we got asperagus now! Usually its too late!
Dalfyre, oh,my, daffs, my other heart throb. It will be April before I see them here again!. That Iris is gorgeous. GIMME!!!
Ihave not tried hellebores... Dont think they would survive my floods or the soil.
I would love to do caladiums, but will have to do them in pots!
As for the daylilies, I have some that go until October and some will even rebloom. I have started to mow some of the beds to add woodchips to them and clean them up. Next year we are going after the grass in these beds, I cannot take it any more. Between the grass and the raspberries.. UGH! They make a mess of the beds.
I have some water plants now that I will be adding to the Whats in your bog thread at this link.. you can see them there later today, well, that is if I get to them. I have a busy day ahead!
Thanks for the new August thread Dianne. Lovely lemons, It must smell great it your garden!
Yardequeen your garden is still packed with colour and looks beautiful. Love the Bouganvillia, Thanks!
Dalfyre, nice to see your spring flowers are starting, what pretty Hellebore colour.
Blossom, that Asparagus looks delicious, enjoy your dinner!
Oh yes I meant to ask BB if you put hollandaise on your asparagus? It is really good like that over toast, yum!
Hi everyone! Nice August pictures! I'll need to get out there and take some more pics, A new dahlia opened today and the bloom is rectangular! Very unique!
Anyways, I got to go but I'll be back later!
Dont do hollandaise.. we do velveta cheese! Its excellent on the asperagus...of take a canned spray cheese (Yellow) and put that in it!
Thos brugs are gorgeous. Are they hard to do? That is another one I have not tried.
I am a glutton for ZINNIAS, but this year I had absolutely ZERO! LOL!
Thank you! They do take a lot of water and feeding. I don't feed mine as much as I should (once a week!). They need to be wawtched for pests (mostly spider mites) But they do good for me. I have 75 in pots and at least that many more in the ground. A lot of the ones in the ground are small. I am going to dig them up this fall and either pot them or get rid of them. I do not intend to keep them in the ground anymore.
Oh Steven, I gotta see that???
Cheesy sounds good BB - I know how much I like it on broccoli and cauli!
