I can't believe it's SEPTEMBER!
The last couple nights in August it got down to 55 and we started watering the beds and large containers every 2nd day.
We had several PERFECT days, which I unfortunately spent working in the office all day and half the night. Sure hope we don't have another October freeze like last year — I'll try to upload some new garden pics this weekend.
