My August-2017 Garden

September is gaining speed, so I'd better post my garden's August pictures.
This was a different August. Summer came later than usual this year as
everything in the garden shifted to a later beginning.
So, what was usually blooming in July, was flourishing in August, making last month colorful and lush.
And now, to the garden, with numerous pictures and a few comments.
The pictures are in chronological order, so there will be the same plants and parts of the garden shown in different times throughout August.

This pic is a symbol of some kind. A symbol of an era ending in my life and in my garden.
The birdies have flown out of our family nest. Tests have been taken, applications submitted, acceptances received, bags packed.
Test preparation books are now free for serving as stands for bouquets...

White begonia basket in the Shade Garden.
Different time of the day, different lighting, different atmosphere...

Right border is getting more full and colorful with the lawn shrinking slowly but steadily.

Some new plants - Hypericum p. above and Canna below

Hakonecloa, Japanese Forest Grass, got lighter, more yellow tone after being moved here from shadier corner of the garden.
