Arriving home after being away a week, I always head out to see what’s grown or changed in the garden. I was delighted to see the hydrangea trees starting to turn pink. Just like a growing child, you don’t always appreciate the change unless you have some distance from it.
It’s been a rainy, muggy summer in Rye, so I’m really looking forward to early Fall in the garden. I love spending time outdoors, so I’m hoping to savor another 6-8 weeks or so before we begin to think about putting the garden to bed for the winter.
The tulips will be planted. The fountain will be taken apart. Pumpkins will appear. A new season is on the horizon, so here’s a last peek at summer before it’s gone. Wishing you a relaxing and wonderful final week of August and “summer” before we turn the calendar page to September and all that brings!
