One Bloomin' Season - It's already August!
Welcome. Is it really possible that we are already in August? Where did the time go? Here is the view from one of the kitchen windows in my 'garden kitchen':
H. 'First Frost'
H. 'Fortunei Aureomarginata' - I need to move this but don't know where to put it. It grows on both sides of the fence.
H. 'Guacamole' - it smells wonderful too
On the left is H. 'Fortunei Aurea' and on the right is H. 'Stained Glass', another fragrant hosta with pale-golden leaves.
And this is H. 'Whirlwind', introduced in 1989 by John Kulpa of Warren, MI. Yay, John. I love the variation in those leaves, but then y'all know how much I love hostas.
I'm saving the 'flowering-flowers' for next week, but here is another astilbe that blooms a little later than the others. It is called 'Color Flash' and has leaves that will change colors as we move into fall. Fall? already?
