With a bit of cooler weather the flowers and the gardener are reviving. We still are getting temperatures close to 90 degrees but the sun feels softer and the nights are much cooler. I am thinking about the changes I want to make.
While spring flowers are bright and vibrant. The summer colors are soft.
You’re looking at the northeast corner arbor. To the left is one of my raised vegetable beds. The bed holds roses on one side and vegetables on the other. Narrow, small evergreens serve as constant focal points. I really appreciate the evergreens in the winter. Bluish leaves grace the Clematis glauca. This metal arched arbor is to the right of the pond.
My pond and paths are lined with our local pink limestone. This little guy has been staying close to the pond. Maybe he thinks he is blending in. Notice the edge of the pond.
