My August Garden

Here we are, the last garden post of the summer. This year, I can honestly say that I am ready for the fall to come, and for that big autumnal change to happen.

Perennials : Allium

What up my gardening budz? I hope that you're ready for an intense amount of perennial posts, as I've got lots of late spring loveliness blooming in my garden at the moment.
