I didn’t have a single fire pump for Cee’s challenge, so I went back through seven years of August. From Glocester to Rockport, from Connecticut to Maine … these are the hot, humid, hazy days of late summer in New England.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Gardens

The gardens of New England are a bit tired as we go into August. Most of my flowers are early summer flowers. They used to bloom in May and June, but recently they bloom in late June and July. Right now, it just looks awful! The Daylilies are gone, the roses are pretty, but there aren’t a lot of them.

And in the water …

THE WILDFLOWER GARDEN AT RIVER BEND – Garry Armstrong

Wildflower Garden at River Bend – 08/05/19

River Bend is all about “wild.” So, not surprisingly, the gardens are entirely made up of wildflowers. I took a few pictures of them. The gardens are peaceful and the bees are always busy within.

#FOTD – THE FLOWERS AT RIVERSIDE – Marilyn Armstrong

Flowers in the Medieval Garden at Riverside Healthcare

I lost a bunch of pictures from this chip be inadvertently deleting a folder. But they had some lovely flowers and these are the pictures that I didn’t delete. Sorry about that! It’s a mistake I’ve made before and every time I do it, I kick myself around the room.

And our lovely Renegade surrounded by flowers:

AS THE DAYLILIES BEGIN TO FADE AWAY – Marilyn Armstrong

The passing of the Daylilies – FOTD – 07/22/2019

The Daylilies are reaching the end of their road. Some are still blooming, but most are just stalks and won’t return until next summer.

We still have some roses and the odd Rhododendron, but that’s pretty much “it” for our garden this year.
