Before the decline sets in. Actually this photo was taken two weeks ago, and it’s now obvious that the decline has already begun. This portion of the garden is the only section that remained photo worthy. The rest of the front garden has way too many fried and scraggily bits. Taking photos is the best way of keeping a record of all the plants during their growing season and will remind me of what worked and didn’t work when it comes to planting summer annuals next year.
