A container of volunteer pink and white Vinca, a late Summer gift, forgotten behind a Burning Bush and discovered over the weekend.
Raindrops on leaves and blooms are evidence of Monday morning thundershowers bringing cooler temperatures to the Saint Louis area.
I bought this Tree Philodendron and another one like it, over 25 years ago. This is the lone survivor. The other lived about 15 or so years.
Over the years, this one has been completely denuded of leaves, from time to time, giving us the impression it’s days were over. So far, it’s managed to come back, after these episodes. It usually sits in J’s “lodge”. This summer, it has resided on the patio and apparently likes it!
Geraniums, blooming in the wicker plant stand, on the back porch.
Sunny Sunday view, from our driveway.
Mums preparing to put on a show in September.
Anemone’s with lots of buds, by the bench and under our hearth room window.
In the photo, below, more Anemone’s, a Hosta, with blooms, and ornamental grass.
Knockout Roses, on the back porch railing. These plants, 5 or 6 feet tall, are planted on the wall beside the patio.
An abandoned combine sits beside the highway, where overpass construction is underway. Late summer color is seen in the trees and field. Summer haze is visible across the distant hills.
How does your late Summer garden grow?
