this is a side by side of the same view 1 year apart.
This is a new garden in 2008 I had planted the fatas in May when the bulbs came from Brent andBeckys, had no idea when they would bloom.They were ontime this year.
In the first pix you can see the 2 phlox blooms.What a difference a year makes.
I'm certainly noticing that it's getting dark around 8 PM here. I used to be able to work outside for an hour but now I can only do it with the aid of the outdoor lights. Some of our nicest weather is in October.
Funny, It's been so hot here and then just a couple of days ago I went outside and thought WOW you can feel Fall in the air. Yes many of my plants seem to be pushing out more flower buds and the Asters and Mums are starting to bloom even the light is different. What a short summer this has been.
