The ebb and flow of a garden keeps it interesting. What's peaking in your garden right now?

"Compared to most of the country, we'd have pretty ideal garden weather this summer in Central Ohio: cool, wet spring and summer; somewhat hot and dry August and early September. Lots of plants in my garden are showing wear and tear and looking pretty tired, but some things are just winding up. Here's a few highlights."

Please keep sending in photos (and stories)! Whether you've never shared before or you've been featured multiple times, we want to see your garden! Email a few photos and the story behind your garden to GPOD@taunton.com.
