Grasses in Bloom and Tuesday Garden Party

Welcome to this week's Tuesday Garden Party at Creative Country Moms!
This week I wanted to share the lovely grasses on the butterfly hill.

 They along with the sedums and sages are so pretty this time of year.
 I sure do wish it would cool off a bit to enjoy them.
Heat index of over 100 and in the 90's here in Indiana!
 Last week's party was wonderful.
I featured many of you on my Facebook Page too.
I am going to try and do that every week.

Okay... lets get to it!

From your host for this week, Michelle @ SimplifyLiveLove

Tuesday Garden Party Scenes from Iowa Aug 26
My garden actually looks terrible after weeks of dry weather and I haven't been doing much in it. I should have been watering, but didn't. Now that we've got heat indices back in the 100s - right in time for the beginning of the school year - we finally got much needed rain. I'm hopeful that that with the heat and the water, my garden will back in business and I will gather enough tomatoes to make the most awesome Roasted Tomato Sauce ever!
If my own tomatoes don't do much, I'm taking comfort in the fact that I'm heading down to Missouri later this week and will can up my dad's surplus tomatoes. He got all the rain we did not and his tomatoes look absolutely amazing this year. I've got tons and tons of green tomatoes in my garden - just need them to turn red now. Since my garden is nice and moist again, I really, really need to get out there and weed, finally! I haven't weeded in soooo long.
Weeding and drying herbs will keep me busy early next week and canning my dad's tomatoes will keep me busy later on. What will be your garden tasks for the week?

.....On to this week’s lovely features…..
