Best August Ever

I love it when the plants touch across the garage path.  
It's been a great August: sunny, not too hot, ample moisture.

Without the distraction of lots of things blooming, I take quiet pleasure in the shapes of the plants and troughs.

The front "trough" is actually a concrete post footing that I dug up on our property after the post rotted out.  I get so many compliments on that one.  

Real tufa in the bottom of the photo, waiting until spring and new troughs.

Still, there's this...

After a trip to the Midwest, after a terrible week of heat, after the meltdown of my personal life, there's still this foaming front yard out my car window when I come home.
