Victory in the Front Flower Garden

August 8, 2010

As challenging as it has been to get vegetables to grow in the heat of this summer, especially in the front raised beds where the sun hits full force, the front flower garden has really out done itself this year. The Stella d’Oro Lillies bloomed out a bit early, but everything else seems to have worked really hard to compensate for that. Here in late summer the Black-eyed Susans, Asters, Lantana and Purple Heart have really stepped up and produced lots of nice color. This bed gets full afternoon sun and heat reflected off of the house. If you look really close, you might even be able to see Loki, the garden dog peeking out of the front door. Enjoy!
