My favourite photographer Hamlin Grange took these pictures of our garden, which is still thriving in mid-September.
Of course, he complains — like a diva: “That’s not even my best work!” But I love these pix, so I’m sharing them. Here goes:
We are grateful to have inherited a host of phlox from previous owners — 6 different shades in all.
(I wanted to say “a flock of phlox”, but it doesn’t quite work, does it?)
They, and this special shrub (below) from our friend Les, bloom in late summer and attract bees and butterflies.
(Perhaps “flock” would work better here? “A flock of bees and butterflies!”)
There’s fragrant hosta, rudbeckia and other stuff too.
It’s a blessing to have a blooming garden this late in the Canadian summer! The weather has been mild — call it summer in September — and we are grateful.
All photos are by Hamlin Grange.
