Well we have made it till September and the garden is still going strong...
Lets take a look around and see what is blooming.
Welcome to our southern Indiana garden.
As you can see, things are looking a bit like fall.
But the garden really looks very good for late summer here.
It has been hot a few times, but we have had more rain than normal summers.
I am so very thankful for that.
By late summer my reseeding annuals are everywhere.
Here you can see candytuft and moss verbena.
I love to use color in the leaves of the plants like Japanese Maples and Ninebarks.
This maple is a Bloodgood, it was tiny when I planted it.
Now it is almost as tall as the porch.
One of my favorite photos of the summer.
Here you can see all the colors that will be even more dramatic in a few weeks.
My sweet young magnolia and its rusty undersides make a beautiful view.
I cannot wait till it fills in more.
To the right is a smaller maple, in a few years they will be bookends to the front door.
The althea is almost done blooming, but has been a showstopper most of the summer.
Love the golden look of the grass as you see the backyard.
The hydrangeas are still quite beautiful.
A few are turning brown and have been cut back.
But most I leave on the shrub for fall interest.
The pink roses are still blooming and will be until almost December here in Indiana.
They add such great color and charm to the country-cottage garden.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my early fall looking gardens!
I hope you will become a new follower too....Brooke
