Garden Peeping ~ An Evening Walk

Good evening! The moon is almost full and has just risen in the still-blue sky tonight. After a rather hot day, the evening is cool and breezy and so beautiful. Come for a walk with me and Mo?

Everything looks so pretty this year!

We love when neighbors leave their gates open, so we can peek inside. Gardens here are usually small, even tiny. But often lush and charming.

Heading down the secret beach lane.

This gardener cut down the gorgeous black hollyhocks. I was so disappointed, had wanted to ask for seeds, despite it being hard to grow.

Then venturing further.

The koi pond looks beautiful in the summer!

 Deep shade hostas, surprise us with this lavish blue-violet display.

A cute new little fountain has appeared in a public area. I love the funny old tools and bowls, wish it had more water.

You know how I love hydrangeas! The variety and colors are ever changing and so gorgeous.

I hope you can enjoy these August evenings. Go out---look at the moon, admire the flowers and trees.
This Month's moon is the sturgeon moon, when fish were caught and dried for winter. ''Other names for this Full Moon include Green Corn Moon, Barley Moon, Fruit Moon, and Grain Moon from Old English/Anglo-Saxon.'' I like the Barley Moon, or Green Corn moon.

Good night!
