The End Of August In The Backyard

There isn't a whole heck of a lot new going on in the backyard this late in the season, but my Toad Lily is blooming for the first time, so that's exciting.

My mom gave me a piece of hers this year, so you saw pictures of it blooming at her house in my Yard Crasher post.

Here's mine.

Aren't they cool?

I bought a new Agastache late in the season to fill in where my three-year old 'Black & Blue' Salvia decided not to do anything.
It's my first time growing one.
I sorta love them now.
This one is called 'Heat Wave.'

The Cleome is still goin' strong and my Knock Out tree rose is blooming, again.
I love that thing.

The Clematis on the metal arbor has been spitting out random flowers all summer.
Lucky me.

And last, a Kalonchoe that I had in the house has been blooming nonstop since I brought it outside and gave it some new dirt.
He's happy.

And that's it for now.

Shameless plug alert:  
Just a little reminder that you can purchase my floral photographs in my Etsy shop.
If you see one in a post that isn't in the shop, shoot me an email and I'd be more than happy to list it for ya.
The Dad will thank you for helping to support my plant addiction.

Please see my sidebar for the parties I link up to.


  1. Love that toad lily pal! And your path is still rocking up there!!! Just beautiful!!! I hope you are doing well...we are slowing down a bit around here as the back is a war zone with construction...hope to be done soon so the beans have somewhere to play again. Happy week to you! Nicole xoxo

  2. So much gorgeousness! I love the shot of the side of the house with the steps leading up. I hope you'll come and share this outdoor post on The Maple Hill Hop!

  3. Between your fuchsias, salvias and now agastaches, you MUST have hummingbirds in your garden, right?


I love and appreciate all your comments. So don't be shy, just say it!
