Almost certainly the last week for Tammie’s flowers. They were planted from a big box of seeds very late in the season but I think they turned out pretty well. Not really apparent from the angle is how tall they are. The pink and yellow ones in the left half of the frame are nearly two feet tall.
My advice to you, my violent friend, is to seek out gold and sit on it.
