live fast and die young

... seems to be the motto of my flowers and veggies this year. We've had a bumper crop of everything: berries, green beans, cukes, tomatoes and oodles of cut flowers. Oh, and apples and pears, beautiful and big this year! But towards the end of August everything looks a bit pooped out. They're tired of growing, I can tell. The summer squash and the roma tomatoes have just about given up, half are in the compost heap.

I'd like to share some pretty pics of my hard working summer garden.
