Don't get bored now. We are back on the ridge top garden where plants, just plants, are the main focus of things. In time the Garden To Be may contain more "yahd aht". I've got plans and have been collecting things.
For now late summer brings a new cast of flowers to the show. The Great Blue Lobelia, Lobelia siphilitica has wandered the entire mountain top.
We have asters, asters for every season. The White Wood Aster, Eurybia divaricata favors the shadier forest edges.
Turtlehead, Chelone cuthbertii is all over the place too. Sadly most of it is skeletonized to bare stems every year before it has a chance to bloom.
The Anemone japonica are blooming, a sure sign that the end is near. The anemone are really quite rambunctious and can cover a lot of ground.
I love how the lirope blooms here and need to put it to use in the garden to be.
There is plenty to dig and transplant.
A few random sedums live in the ridge top garden. They do ok for the shade they have to deal with. I know where cuttings can be had for my sunnier situations. I like plants that you can just stick cuttings in the ground and that will root.
In late summer a shower is nearing completion. I have reached the tiny sliver at the top.
The track for the glass block is in and the right side wall has begun. It should be nearly complete and grouted by Monday. I say nearly complete because the last bit of tile that will fit around the top of the glass block wall must wait until the glass block is in. The building contractor wants me to wait until he has returned from a month at the beach to do the glass block. I suppose I can do that. I can paint the walls and do the trim, build kitchen cabinets, paint the outside.....
After I goof off for a week.

It's almost time to plant bulbs.
It's almost time for appliances in the cozy cabin, but someones want me and my mouse eating kitties to stay in their house for the winter?
