Bloom Day - August

Joining Carol of May Dreams Garden for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day and Ms. Green Thumb - Jean for Blooming Tuesday.  August brings loads of color to my butterfly garden overlooking the lake.  It is a nice place to sit and enjoy the view and the things that flutter by.  This week we have had loads of dragonflies, butterflies and Gold Finches.  The finches especially love the coneflowers that are starting to go to seed.  We have had some good rain showers this week, which has helped me so much not to be watering as much.  Garden chores continue….  collecting seed, clean up, planting and soon I will be doing a big fall mulch.

I am excited to show you I captured one of my beloved blue dragonflies on a rose.  They are everywhere out here, they will even land on your arms while gardening…

Thanks for stopping by….Brooke
