Oops, it looks like I missed the official August 15 Bloom Day deadline. I was so busy planning the fall garden that I forgot all about it. My community plot is sadly lacking in flowers at the moment but the backyard has plenty of summer flowers.
Most of sunflowers have bloomed and are being enjoyed by the birds and critters. However, there are a few late bloomers.
August is when the dahlias take over their little section of the yard. This giant purple one is my favorite.
The vegetables are going strong. I’m finally able to start harvesting a good amount of eggplant and beans.
