Beyond the Summertime Weeds

Who thought cauliflower could be this beautiful? There’s something about these splashes of color that remind me of fall; heads of edible veggies the shades of vibrant Mums to be planted soon.

And then I see one of my favorite Hydrangeas, a variety called H. paniculata ‘Unique’ slowly transition from its brilliant white blossoms to a faded pink to mauve tone. Part of its beauty is watching the transformation.

So as we hit the midst of August, think colorful thoughts and gather ideas for your fall plantings. If you want a vibrant garden, you must always be one step ahead of it.

In the meantime, absorb all the summer beauty. I can still find these moments beyond the weeds! As Lauren Oliver reminds us, “So many things become beautiful when you really look.”

P.S.  Now is a good time to give your perennials a boost of mid-season fert in its dirt!
