I have smoothed out the transition from the green into brown and have my purples in place as well as a start with the reds. If you check back here you will see where I left off a couple days ago. I have more cutting to do before I can continue with the reds into browns.
My coneflowers are a much deeper pink this year now that they are in the sun all afternoon. I took this photo around 8 p.m. so the color isn't as deep as it is in the daytime.
The year is half over. If I was smart I would be starting on fall projects now. If the heat ever goes away I can start thinking about painting my living room. I don't like to paint with the windows closed and A/C on.
