It wouldn't be summer on the idylls without a tour of your farm, 'bug. I love to hear about your beautiful "escapees." It looks like you have room enough to handle as many as want to escape. It all still looks so fresh.

RE: Today at the Farm

Way fresher than mine for sure, and such nice variety.
I have seen blue lobelia at our creek and want to bring some up but never get around to it. The red one that I brought up has spread nicely.

RE: Today at the Farm

My lobelia siphilitica has escaped all over too, but doesnt look at pretty as yours, Marie. It's hard to believe there are signs of fall already - things look pretty lush and green at your Farm! Beautiful close-ups too.


RE: Today at the Farm

'bug, it all looks just magnifique ! And those little Clems..

RE: Today at the Farm

All is very beautiful Bug! Really love that anemone and C. x bonstedtii 'Crepuscule" so pretty!

Thanks for sharing

RE: Today at the Farm

Out of all the beautiful pictures, I really enjoyed the verbena and grass! What a lovely combo.

Thanks for the tour.


RE: Today at the Farm

You've obviously had a summer like ours with lots of rain to keep things so nice and green through August. I think my favorite is the yellow and blue garden. Are the blue spikes in that garden lobelia? If so they sure are pretty there.


RE: Today at the Farm

Michelle, the spikes are in fact Vitex, a very cool plant which I never expected to succeed here! In our climate it dies back to the ground in winter and emerges fairly late the next spring. It usually blooms in September, but this year was lovely in August!

Here is a link that might be useful: Vitex agnus-castus
