Late August Garden
I really enjoy my late August - early September garden. This is the time I can actually sit out amongst my flowers and enjoy them without being "Deeted" to death. In other words "NO BUGS"! The new generation of hummingbirds are flitting about, sometimes dive bombing me if I get too close to their favorite red bee balm. They usually stick around til about the middle of September and then, suddenly, one day they head for the warmer climes of Mexico and the Caribbean. They return most punctually on nearly the same day every year in early May.
