My Late Summer Flower Garden

My most favorite season is Spring, but Summer and early Autumn are next on my list.

I love the beauty of flowering plants, and wish they would last forever.  However, the hot weather and the upcoming Autumn season is already marking its presence in my summer garden.

Most of my vegetable plants are done for the season, except tomatoes, so I am hoping that my second try with seeding cucumbers, dill, parsley and red beets will be successful before the frost gets here.  I will keep you posted, as this is my first time ever trying to extend the growing season of these veggies and herbs.

My June Garden – Flowers and Veggies

Watching your flower plants produce gorgeous blooms, and your veggies mature for harvesting, is the most rewarding experience of the hobby of gardening.

June is here, so the spring flowers are done blooming, but the perennials are filling out the void by showing off their beauty, and will continue to do so until late fall.

Also, the vegetable garden is progressing nicely and we already are able to use the lettuce, dill, sorrel, parsley, green beans, scallions, rhubarb and strawberries.

My May Garden

All the rain showers we have been having lately washed off many of the early spring flowers, but new ones came up in their place.

Also my veggie garden is fully planted by  now, so all this fine rain is great for my baby plants.

Today I will share some of the current flowers in my garden.

Spring Flowers From Cracow

My sister and I share the love of gardening, so we often exchange pictures of our success, or cry over our failures.   

I have to deal with Japanese Beetles, and her worse garden enemy is a pesky Vole. 

Anyway, today we will be enjoying the beauty of her spring flowers. 

It looks like Spring in Cracow is kinder to her flowers, than ours is to mine…:-)
