Summer Garden

 It is the peek of summer.

 I know this because the Oakleaf Hydrangeas are just starting to turn pink.

 This is a sure sign in my gardens that Fall is on the way.

 This is the other telltale sign. The Salem Witch daylilies are ready to bloom.  They always bloom by the 4th of July.

 My cukes and zukes are putting out lots of blossoms but none are setting so far.

 I have lots of green tomatoes.

 The cherry tomatoes are being eaten already.  I don't have enough ripe ones to make it into the house. These get eaten on the spot.

Roma tomatoes....I can't wait to make sauce!

Today it feels like autumn already has arrived here but it will get warmer they say, at least for a day or two :-)

Thankfully the nights have become a bit warmer so some plants are actually growing again :-)

Have a great day!

I'm happy to see your garden is thriving! My garden is a bust so far this summer! Where did you get those Salem Witch Day Lilies? I HAVE to get some!

Happy 4th!

It is SO hot here in London, not typical weather at all. We're having a proper summer and I'm going to savor every moment. You garden is stunning.
