The Curated Weed Show

My weeds .. er wild flowers are in massive bloom.

It is colorful out there, but it is still two to three weeks away from peak bloom. The asters have yet to arrive.

I considered doing the open garden day on September 17th. I had to wait until then because of commitments to the West Asheville Garden Stroll for the next two weekends. I was too afraid to wait that long though. Outside forces are unpredictable. Last year the Tall Flower Meadow was wrecked by a wicked thunderstorm.

I'm hoping that doesn't happen again this year and visitors are always welcome. The Sisters will be here at the end of October and while that is well past peak bloom, a perky fall meadow is much more interesting than a squashed one.

The fall meadow can actually be quite stunning in an entirely different color palette.

Tomorrow's visitors to my weed show will see the late summer meadow.

I did some minor touch up on the paths and in the fire ring. Can you tell?

It looks much mo betta without that hairball on the Great Lawn. It's Showtime!

It was truly glorious! And yes it felt quite comfortable compared to the heat of the valley. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
