August Garden Tour

Summer is coming to an end, sadly.
We had a lot of rain in Gaspé, 
(Eastern Canada) this summer;
considering our short summers 
and a planting zone of 5a;
my flowers did very well.
Most of my flowers are perennials.
Join me on a tour of  "My August Garden"

Pink flamingos under the Weeping Willow Tree.

A nice poem:

╰⊰⊹✿"The brightest sun ~ the softest shade...
This is where my thoughts are made...
A small stone bridge ~ a clean, clear stream...
This is where I come to dream.
Where butterflies speak to summer flowers,
And birds chatter freely from lofty bowers...
From the soft green grass at the water's edge,
To the deep cool forest beyond the hedge...
This is where my heart feels free...
This is where I come to be me."✿⊹⊱╮
