We've had some lovely weather the last few days, in the mid-80sF here is southwestern Maine, but such low humidity and cool breezes off the river that made it so comfy outdoors. Many residents here sitting out under the huge trees and enjoying the passing of the river and the summer blooming the last couple of days. There's some 60'sF days coming for Monday and Tuesday and nothing really hot for at least a week which makes things pleasant for Mainers and tourists alike.
Some of our flowers have passed, such as the Black-eyed Susans, Dianthus, early-blooming coneflowers, and the Shasta Daisies but I see later Black-eyed Susans are just opening in our birch tree garden where there's more shade. I'll try to remember to take some photos of the birch tree areas soon. Its shady under the trees and grows shade-loving flowers. We've had a variety of blossoms in that area already which have passed and more to come from the looks of things.
Its always a pleasure to stroll thru our grounds with its many flowering bushes and blooms. I thought I would miss my own garden from back home when I moved here, but with all this color and beauty, I don't miss it at all and another more energetic and gardener takes care of it in all seasons. I'm happy to just have a few containers this year.
Have a good day my friends.
