August garden highlights

August is the month that brings a lot of garden bounty. I have a small garden but it still gives me picking options for the month. Hydrangeas, roses and dahlias to name a few. Many of our perennials are a feast for the hummingbirds that visit the garden. Here are some of the best in the August garden and for hummingbird action.

Salvia Amistad - my favourite and still going strong
