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
Salvia Black and Blue
Salvia - very pretty, can’t remember the name of this variety
Fuchsia Magellanica - we have it tucked in everywhere for the hummingbirds xx
Monarda Raspberry Wine aka Bee Balm, Bergamot, Oswego Tea
Roses are having another flush of bloom.
Dahlia - Café au lait
A few random captures around the garden.
Lots of summer left. I hope you are enjoying it, whatever you are up to!! xo
