Plants in my life


The Joe Pye weed is growing tall- over my head at the park. It seems to hang-out by the stream. The garden Phlox has been blooming beautifully. This year I even got to plant some of my own. The rose of sharon bush, age 2 is putting on quite a show even though it has been battered by hail. I have so enjoyed the flowers around me I hate to trim them but fall is on its way.

In the Community Garden now has fed the people and had the community working together. Bella and I still go there almost everyday. The compost bins are full, getting soil ready for next year.  This last plant, we called Dutchman’s Britches with a friend.

    • This park is a wonderful place. I wrote about it months back 4 in 1- a winning solution. It has three different walking trail (even a paved one), ball fields, the stream, a disc golf course and the community garden. Inspired planning.


  2. The colour of your rose of sharon is really pretty. It’s always a hard decision to cut things back – leave it too late and it won’t get done, do it too early and we’ll no doubt have a long mild autumn! 😉 Lovely photos Mountainmae!


  3. Lovely photos!!! I love gardening too so was excited to see your post – my flox and my rose of sharon were particularly beautiful this year (nothing I did, so I will take no credit!). Your photos are great – I always have trouble taking really great photos of individual flowers for some reason….
