Mid-August Garden Tour
While doing a little clipping and trimming this morning, I was greeted by this little Praying Mantis. (well, not really little, about 2 inches long) and that prompted a dash into the house to get the camera. So here are some other images of the day. Just a few morning glory, and one last day lily. I cut back the spent 'surprise lilies', and here's closeup a shot of a broken off stem. The hostas are coming on, with their big white lily clusters. (also known as Plantain Lilies). A Cicada, and of course, the inevitable bumble bee in the rose of sharon.
