Summer’s End in Harrisburg, PA
"It’s nearing the end of summer in my Zone 6b garden. Despite only 1 rain in the past 4 weeks, and a potential record breaking summer for heat, the garden has held up pretty well. Last week I had 36 people from Australia touring my garden. They are spending 3 weeks in the mid-Atlantic, and wanted to tour some private gardens, in addition to the major public ones. I was one of 5 gardens locally that were chosen. I had an awesome time with this very avid group of gardeners. My garden is under 1/2 acre, and in a suburban development. My garden includes 131 conifers and 12 Japanese maples, in addition to numerous perennials. I have shared photos in the past, but never of the late summer garden. I chose more overview pictures, rather than focusing on individual plants. I hope you enjoy."
