BINGOs: Fast and Furious
My Weekend With Nick

Bloomin' Friday

It's the middle of August, and my garden is really winding down.

Still plenty of blooms . . .

and lots of activity from the bees and butterflies . . .

But -- definitely a garden in its last gasp before the season changes!  Still, there is much I love about my end-of-summer garden.

My hydrangeas are really something this year.  Out front, I have peegees . . .

and "Pinky Winky" (my favorite).  (The bees love this one so much.)

And my little herb garden is wonderful.  I visit every night when I cook dinner.  (Even though something is eating my basil, and my dill never really took off this year.)

We're getting some hops on the vine.

Even though it's winding down, my garden is still a vibrant and happy place to be.

And working in it . . . brings me relaxation and a sense of grounding.  (Even though the work is never done.)

My garden is my happy place.

(And we all need one of those!)
Enjoy the weekend.
