We’re officially in the last days of summer.
However, summer isn’t letting go easily here at the farm.
The lilies, which finished blooming at the beginning of August, have pushed a few buds out in the last week.
One random shasta daisy, the one I somehow missed when I trimmed the dead flower stalks, popped out in bloom too.
Notice the sedum blooming like crazy? Sedum and lilies and daisies don’t usually bloom together.
When I was taking these photos, a particularly resilient mosquito even appeared. They just won’t go away!
Summer is my favourite season, so I’m not ready to let it go any more than my lilies and daisies are. However, I’d be happy to lose the mosquitoes.
What signs of the season are you seeing your house? Do you have any late bloomers in your gardens? Anyone else have mosquitoes still hanging around?
