My Flower Garden in August

We’re expecting scattered clouds and possibly more rain today in the Northeast, but my flower cutting garden continues to produce beautiful blooms.

Fortunately, there are many flowering plants that blossom this time of year, including rudbeckias, phlox and shasta daisies - and my garden, located just behind my main greenhouse, is filled with them. My goal for this garden was to always highlight unusual flowers from different parts of the world using seeds from trusted sources and seeds I find during my travels. I'm so happy with how it has developed over the last couple of seasons - I really enjoy comparing its progress from year to year, and seeing where I need to add more plants to improve the display.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
