In space between mid and late summer, few plants bloom. But I found some in our gardens to share. I've included a book snapshot at the end because I love nothing better than to get caught up in a good book in the languid days of summer (or the orange light of autumn or the snows of winter or the fragrance of spring). Okay, every season is a great time to read.
|Cyclamen. I'm babysitting this for my dad.|
|I love this stump. The rich browns, the character lines, |
and the ivy trying to subdue it.
|Phlox in my wildflower garden.|
|My figs will ripen soon. Hopefully, I can pick them before the deer and squirrels feast. Last year, the night before I was going to harvest, the critters stripped both trees of every single fig.|
