A few new pictures - August garden

Hello everyone,

I managed to take a couple of pictures yesterday and thought I'd post a few on here. My August garden looks pretty good in some places and pretty ratty in others. I will post the good pictures :). I've been trying to take photos every month to see where I need to move things and improve places, and boy, I'm going to be writing a long list of improvements for August! Certain areas just look so tired... do many of you experience the same thing, or have you fine tuned your gardens to look good most months? That is my goal!

Anyhow, here are some pics:

Hello again,

Thank you for the nice comments. The orange flowers in the first and second pictures are helenium, or sneezeweed. Not a very good name for such a beautiful plant!

Thanks again for looking!

Gorgeous!

Lovely pics--makes me yearn for your Northwest climate. I don't think Helenium would grow well here in Ohio. I especially like the poppies with those blue hydrangea. What makes me nervous, though, is the gooseneck--so invasive.

Love that you have big clumps of perennials, not onesies and twosies. Fabulous helenium!

What is that pretty pink flower with the blue hydrangeas? Some sort of poppy?
