August is fast drawing to a close. I have been occupied with company and travel planning, so the gardens have not been tended as I’d wish. Nevertheless, there are surprises and beauty to be found. Some quick photos from this morning….

Verbena bonariensis with ‘Overdam’…a favorite combination
Vitex is always a special delight. It really isn’t supposed to survive here, but with patience, eventually shines!
Thanks for joining me on my walk-about!
