Late Summer at Springwell Gardens

September is here and summer is slipping away... well sort of... the days are getting shorter, but the heat and humidity are hanging on. The garden is full and kinda overgrown...
Don't look too closely or you will see there's a bit of mildew on the stems and insect nibbles too...
It's like shabby chic for the outdoors if you ask me. There are still  flowers blooming, but some are slowing down.
It's time to gather blooms for drying for winter designs,
And to keep an eye on the dahlias and sedums that I need for weddings this month and next.
Soon it will be time to start planting corms and bulbs for next season's blooms.
One of these days I hope to have the beds neater and better organized. I will keep you posted on how that goes....
