Autumn approaches

Somewhere between recent travel up and down the East Coast, being laid up with a back injury, and rainy weekends, the garden has been sadly neglected during the past few weeks.

Nevertheless, autumn is marching resolutely in our direction. These "Purple Dome" asters (Aster novae-angliaeaster) are just coming into bloom.

Seasonal blues

My dear children have flown the roost to college, and I miss them. A floral sentiment includes sweet peas, salvia, hosta, and ageratum.
