August is in full swing and I still had not shared my yard's bounty. Especially proud of the
hydrangeas and their beautiful blue tones.
This year the color is particularly nice, a bit darker than past years. Can you believe I saved this
flower that was being thrown out by a neighbor, left out for the trash pickup years ago.
Did not even think it would survive.
Clematis made a good show at the homestead too. Lots of grey washed wood here,
I think the color gives an aged appearance.
This is all in my side entrance area and the back of the ell of the house. The house section to the right is the original portion built in 1796. The left side, with the door, is the modern area, added in 1856, when kitchens became in vogue! The entire addition was just kitchen, still is.
thanks for visiting.
