We’ve visited Tim Vojt’s garden in Columbus, Ohio, several times (HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE), and I’ve even visited it in person (HERE)! Tim just sent in some late-summer pics, and the garden is as awesome as ever. Tim says, “After seeing Miyako’s photos of her annuals and realizing that many of us are using the same coleus varieties this year, I was inspired to go out take some photos of the massive tangles coming from the few containers I have. Most everything in the garden is reveling in the cool weather and the rain that we had virtually forgotten existed this summer. All the photos are from the last week of September, except the agapanthus, which was taken in July. The star of the coleus varieties here is the dusky, velvety, purple-black one that trails and never seems to bloom. The cascade down the front steps is just the outgrowth of two cuttings in the nearly invisible blue container at the top of the stairs. All of the perennial scenes are of areas that received little or no supplemental water during the heat and drought.” Keep ’em coing, Tim! I can’t get enough of your garden.
