Stuck in the Middle with Blue

My middle child is now in Middle School!
Good Luck baby - I love you!

Hidden Beauty

My late summer garden is BORING! The bright pinks and purples of spring are faded. I've had to thin and trim the verdant thyme ground cover back to stems and the day lilies have gone to bed. August demands a closer look to find anything beautiful - there are only glimpses:

Juicy blackberries peeking out at the
sun from behind floppy leaves.

"Morning Glorious": a volunteer treasure with blue, fuchsia and white blossoms that hides behind the garden shed!
