~August Brings~

~BitterSweet August~
Hard to believe August is well upon us, and delighting us with...
Green beans, peaches, tomatoes, grapes, berries, sunflowers,
gourds, squash, cucumbers, as well as flowers in vibrant hues~
Purples, Oranges, Golds, & Brilliant Reds!
~And lots of colorful Butterflies~

Raspberries, Blackberries
& Zinnia's

~Trying to enjoy the few Roses the Deer & Beetles
are kind enough to share with me! :)

Beautiful August photos Cat. Ah, deer and beetles...I don't have a deer problem but boy, the Japanese Beetles are finally gone by me and I couldn't be happier, they are a scurge in the garden.
