August is a transition month from summer flowers to fall flowers. The beginning of the month has a few stubborn late blooming DAYLILES but they are mostly finished by mid-month.

One reason I plant several annuals every Spring is to fill these few transition weeks between Spring to Summer and Summer to Autumn flowers because they never slow their blossoms all season long. That is not to say they are the only flowers in bloom, they just help with more showy color to assist the reliable perennials during these same periods.

Open this folder for a very revealing tour of the Island to show you what it looks like during the beginning half of August and the last half.

Because the Waterfall was built during summer of 2017 my photos do not match August flowers or plants; some pictures may have fallen leaves or autumn colored foliage. I felt it important to include photos in each folder so you would see what it looks like should this be the only folder you see. This upcoming season will be a time of planting and helping it look more established than just bare boulders. Know that it will only become more beautiful as time goes on and new photos will be available after the upcoming season.
