August in the Garden

Above is the first bloom of my Echinacea 'Pink Double Delight'. This hybrid was developed in the Netherlands and lives up to its photos. I will get two more...this fall or early next spring to fill in the area.

It is amazing what ten minutes more of sun will do. These potted ageratums were grown from seed and thus are blooming just now. They are stair steps because the sun reaches the blooming one first as it peaks over the tree tops.


  1. This is beautiful. I have never seen them before. Can you purchase them online?
    Have a great day. Hopefully cooler where you are.

  2. Ernestine, I got mine at a nursery. I am sure they will be there next spring if they are all sold now.

Glad to hear from you once again. I really like these visits. Come sit on this log and tell me what you are thinking.
