I truly love this time of year! The flowers are just getting ready for one more big bloom before fall, and I just can't wait until the Staghorn Sumac behind it begins to change. Planting in pots is necessary here because we live on almost pure gravel. I am lucky to have a good source of large pots from Paul.
I can rearrange the pots as the plants develop. I just love my morning plant watering and taking care of the various plants. Some are my house plants that spend the summer outside, and there is a section that is still sunny that is full of Blazing Stars and different colors of Yarrow that come in after the Iris and Lillies are done.
