Garden Tour Thursday

IZA:  Oh hi - Im checking some of the pots looking for where all mosquitos have been hatching.  They have been brutal lately.  Cool wet weather in August really got them going!
But iffen we keep moving, they wont bother us.  They like TBT more than us annyway.

The Asters are blooming nicely. 
Actally, there is a whole pink area here briefly.  There are Pink Asters next to Pink Sedum next to Red Asters.  They all sort of flop together.  I keep telling TBT to put up a support for them, but it never gets to the top of his TO DO list.  Oh well, so long as they keep blooming!
The Stella D' Oro Lilies are sending up one last bloom.  That will be the 3rd time this year.  Cant complain about that!
These showed up out of no where.  I think they are native Goldenrods.  We have some cultivated ones But they dont look THIS good.  Leave it to a native plant to find the sunniest place ta grow!
Now, I gotta warn ya.  The wasps seem ta really like them.  So iffen wasps give ya the "willies", ya may want ta stand back a bit.
But iffen ya want ta look, ya will notice that one wasp keeps circling around another.   They are fighting.  The ones on the flowers ignore the flying ones.  Are they (blush) "courting"?

Lets run away and get up on the deck where it is safer! 

TBT arranged the snacks today.  So, there are fresh NIP leafs scatterred all over the deck.  We have so MANY he just cut some stems and stripped all the leafs off to fall where they may.  Meanwhile, we have several crunchy and soft treats from pouches to munch and TURKEY broth ta drink...

Thanks fer coming on the Garden Tour this week!


  1. Fabulous close-up pics of those wasps!

    Sydney, Australia

  2. That Goldenrod is a lovely yellow. We have had so much rain this summer that my flowers are looking very bedraggled already.
    I think I will pass on the nip and turkey broth, but if TBT has got any chocolate handy......

  3. You always have such a nice looking garden, we're impressed. Hey, our crabgrass is still blooming!

  4. Pretty flowers, Iza!

    Too bad those aren't Green Hornets!

  5. Pretty flowers. We like the goldenrod. Though we're not fond of wasps.

  6. You have some very nice fall blooms!

  7. Mum found one of those pink aster things in the yard and she didn't plant it. Maybe we can keep it going for next year.

  8. My mom loves the surprise like TBT found Goldenrods ! It's a nice surprise you can smile. It makes a day so lovely truly =^x^= Ours are not Goldenrods but Ferns. Me and mom always love your garden, Miss Iza. It's so bright with so many colours and I guess they make your air smells wonderful too.
    Have a great coming weekend

  9. Sorry we are late getting by, we love Goldenrod all of our is wild. Your pink asters are pretty all of ours are purple. We have some growing wild here.

  10. Iza I love it when you throw a garden pawty. There is always something t eat and enjoy!

  11. Wow! You have still got lots of blooms. Ours are starting to fade away...and we had a storm Saturday which helped to knock off more blooms.

    Yummy kitty treats, Thank you:)

  12. Oh and wasps?? Interesting to see them, but glad that they are only pictures, MOL! They can be such a bane to garden times...


We're always glad to hear from our friends...
