This lovely pink sedum is blooming now to the delight of the bees.

Curly chives sometimes called circle chives make a neat round cushion of foilage all summer and lovely lavender blooms late in the season.

Now the list is getting shorter. Many flowers are nearly finished blooming. Some are making one last effort to bloom. A few plants are on the list for the first time and there are still a few late bloomers yet to come, that we hope will squeeze in their bloom time before cold weather arrives.

I was lucky enough to get a glimpse of the fox in the garden today.
