Late Summer Garden

The summer garden of wild flowers is coming to an end! The asters came out on the 17th of July...and they are the harbinger that says summer will end in 6 weeks!
 Now the other flowers are catching on. The salsify has bloomed and is starting to disperse seeds.

 The “susan’s" are becoming their prettiest. I happen to like them the best when they are just over the hill.
Lastly, the berries are starting to appear.  I see the telltale signs that say the deer have been munching away. Yesterday I had a wild strawberry, today it’s gone! BTW a wild strawberry is about 3/8 of an inch long and filled with sugar....the deer love them!
