Hi all I figured I'd start a new thread for the new month! And since theres not always alot of new blooms this time of year lets get artsy fartsy with our pics and take some of changing foliage and seedheads or whatever is interesting :)


I haven't taken any pics this month yet so somebody else will have to start us off! hahaha.

here's the link to the one that dalfrye started. might be less confusing to have just one??? Since she is a day ahead of us, her September 1st shows up as our August 31st. It is a nice twist since she is heading into spring.

Well, here ya go SW... I have a feeling there will be lots of September in the garden so I am gonna pop back and forth!

Thanks for posting the link Soils. When I get to dalfyres link, I will post SW's so incase someone is hopping like me!

Heres my grapes from the prairie! I get tons of vines for making wreaths out of these guys. They are however very puny and very sour!

I am planting some domestic blu seeded grapes up by the nursery so hope to have some bunches that will be edible later on. I know nothing about doing grapes other than I whack the ones in the woods back every fall and make the wreaths out of them. These in the pic are wild. They grow in the poor ground so that is probably why they are puny!

I used to have one called purple dome which was a compact one only about 1.5 feet tall. They are stunning with mums.

I used to have a huge collection of mums at our old farm. They did not survive here. I have only one mum now and it is my last bloom before winter.

I need to get out to the woods. Things shouldbe interestiing out there.

Here is another coleus. Why are coleus flowers all blue.. or is there another one I dont know about? This one is coming indoors.

Well, I was out in the woods today and ran across this beauty...well beauty as in the eye of the beholder. It is one hive of two that is out there. It is a huge hornets nest. After the critters leave the nest this fall we hope to preserve it. Just am not too sure how we are gonna go about getting it out of that tree yet! And I surely am not gonna bother them before they are done! OUCH OUCH!

How did you preserve the nest?? Our plan is to wait until its near or in winter and then hope there is no body home, stuff it in a box, fumagate it and put the box in a plastic bag. Fumagate it again.

We have actually two of them out there but the one is waaay high and well...getting it down is going to be an issue.

The hub said to auction it off on ebay!! LOL!

Still getting peppers...I hope they dont frost.

LOL, I can see it now the bee hive with that MJ bikini falling out of it LOL< LMAO -
We didn't do anything to preserve it, just got it down and let it dry on a covered porch and made sure no bugs in it and then brought it in and stapled it to the slanted ceiling. I'll take a pic for you next time up there. It is really neat as it looks so fragile and the workmanship is phenomenol. They really are busy bees.
We didn't do any of the fumigate stuff just put it up when sure no more bees around it.

Well, since I am allergic to the hornets..I want to be safe. When do you expect they will have spent their time and are gone for sure? Last thing I need is a few of them biting me. I hate to kill them too since there is no need like as if they were in the attic of something, but these are out in the woods and I want nature to finish her course and get the nest after they are done. Once done, I want to be doubly sure none will be IN my home should we bring it indoors!

Ouch BB, guess you want to make sure they have left the nest. Tim got this one that had dropped to the ground I believe. I don't really know their habits, perhaps best you google when they leave the nest.

I just had to get in here and share my vigna caracalla vine, it is scrumptious. Not nearly as many blooms as last year, but even just one is magnificent in my estimation. Okay will quit going on about it!

Very colorful Steven. You are right that basket is very lush. What all is in that first one? I want to call them anemones, but not sure. They sure are pretty and brilliant display.

That is my favorite ally! Looks like mine is going to be generous in seed too... I am leaving it in my window boxes and hope all I aaahave to di is water and watch grow next season! I had a bunch of annuals come that way this year!

I want to grow a lot of zinnias next season... gonna have to find a good source for a huge pile of seed! I am thinking my sunnies patch will be the zinnia plot.

Alyssum Carpet of Snow was one of the first things I ever grew...
I was all of 9 years old & dug myself a garden in a spare bit of space & used my pocket money for seeds, the other plants were Sweet Williams & a cutting from one of mum's daisy bushes. The daisy thrived on the horse manure I carried home in my sand bucket...
never took that to the beach again ^_^
