The blue wild flax flowers are thinning out in the garden, but I still find them to be beautiful. With cooler temperatures and shorter days, the flowers often linger into the early to mid-afternoon.

Allergy season is in full swing, and the contractor has started work on the house, and so my outdoor activities are limited. All of the flowerbeds around the house are gone, the iris rhizomes pulled up and waiting for me to see if there is anything left for me to try to replant.

After the September holiday, I will be in the back yard cutting down everything in this last garden and start thinking about what I might be able to plant for next spring. I will miss the tulips in particular.

    I love these blue wild flax flowers. You must have a major overhaul on your house and yard! We had a lot of major overhauling a few years back and while it was well worth it, we lived in a mess for a while : )
