Chutney making in the Shed...
|A first today, chutney chopping in the shed; and very pleasant it was. Such a beautiful day, I didn't want to be in the kitchen.|

Yet more frontier to conquer..
|No Lilacs, no Abovritae , and no Hydranga Queciflia …sorry I had to be ruthless . It looks awfully bare and dusty; but this will be a small shady seating area , very much needed , I realized this summer.|

September Garden bloggers bloom day ..
|Once again I've been caught out; and forgot it was Bloom day. I did get out this morning to take some photos. And a beautiful September morning it was. The Saccharum ravennae blooms gently swaying.|
|Nicotiana sylvestris self seeds, usually in the wrong places, this year I've dug a few up and relocated them. I'm still finding new ones popping up. I wonder if they'll have time to bloom.|
|My favorite, of the Asters I've planted , A. laferiflorus 'prince' with it's almost black foliage; and I love these tiny daisies.|
|Kniphopia 'torch lilie'|
|I've got all my Asters confused , this could be A. woods blu' or A laevis 'kurt' or a NOID I got from my mother's. Never mind I love them all in September.|
|Catananche caerulea 'cupids dart' which was a late purchase this spring, finally blooming , I think it got too hot for it and it refused to bloom. I like against the smoky pink and purple stems of the Sedum' Matrona'|
|One of the N. sylvestris I moved with blooming Panicum' Cheyenne Sky'|
|Blooming Persicara' virginiana'|
|And finally another Aster, which could be any of the one's I mentioned above.|
Thank you Carol for hosting and here are more beautiful blooms May Dreams Gardens

September in the garden...
|Every time I try to take a photo this summer there is a hose in sight. Even with cooler temperatures this week , the soil has become so dry that I seem to be watering even more. Today I'll be doing even more watering , with the temperatures up again.|
|The areas with the plants packed in tight would have needed little water , but I've tried to keep the banquet going for the buzzy ones; and added new plants, so I've had to water a bit more.|
|The shade garden hasn't been a problem , except for a thirsty Rogersia: and a pest of a mole or two up lifting all the planting.|
|I've found several self seeded Euphorbia Rigida along the path , which I've been hoping for…less vacant space for weeds.|
