The north border on the first day of August, 2011.
Ahhh...this photo really sums up what I love about the summer garden (can you hear Ella singing from here?) Lots of color, texture and variety. I love taking photos of this part of the garden at this time of year, as it gets hit by both morning and evening light.
In spite of a few issues I need to figure out soon, I've really been trying to just enjoy the garden for what it is this year. For some reason, this border, in particular, has come together better than I expected.
Here in Portland, we've had a pretty mild, pleasant summer so far. We've certainly been spared the horrendous heat so much of the country is suffering through...and I'm VERY grateful. Mornings like this make me so happy to live in the PNW.
