from my deck

02 Sep

summer is winding down.  But there are some nice views from my deck.  The Trumpet Vine (still no flowers after 3 summers) grows up and around one of my bird houses.


And around my water feature, there is a nice contrast in colour and texture, with the Joe Pye-Weed, the Cardinal Flower and the Golden-rod blending together so nicely.


Then sandwiched between the back of the house and the side of the deck, the Butterfly Bush is huge, beautiful and magnet to bees and butterflies.  This morning there was a Viceroy and a Milbert’s Tortoiseshell necturing on the flowers.

      Hi Jo-Ann. We still are undecided about when we are going to head down. But we can’t wait to get back. Hope you guys are having a good “off” season.
