Out Back Gardens Of Late Summer

 First up are my limelight hydrangeas- they're mostly white but will go green and then pink.

 Let's take a walk down the pathway...

 My hostas are doing well, starting to show signs that it's the end of the season though.

This is another view of the same group of hostas.

 Out by the fountain the planters are doing well.

 My hosta hill.  Some are still in bloom.  I choose to leave the blooms in place since the hummingbirds and bees love them!  I cut the flowers away as they decline.

 I planted two swans with the same impatiens and they're just about grown over.  I actually cut away some flowers so you could see their heads. 

 Another view of my other hosta hill planted last year which is doing very well.  I moved my lighthouse out to the back here.

 My Empress Wu hosta is developing into the giant that it's supposed to be.   Covers up my fairy statue now! Those are Brother Stefan hostas up front.  Love their contrasting leaf color.

 Love these yellow begonias!

 In the corner of my deck are a trio of planters.  The one down below is overgrown with white impatiens and there are also some ivy creeping out of the bottom and some caladiums that you can't even see in the middle. 
 This one I planned to be a fall display consisting of several varieties of coleus.

 This one is a floppy mess of snapdragons, salvia and asparagus ferns.  The hummingbirds love it though!

 This Mexican Heather plant took over!  The other side is an asparagus fern.

 And lastly my fairy garden area.

I have to pick up the fairies daily as the chipmunks like to roam through!  The white alyssum make for a nice cottage setting.  The Annabelle hydrangeas have gone from white to green and are starting to get papery.  They'll make for nice dried flowers before long.

So that's my Out Back Gardens of Late Summer!
