Bonnie Pancoast is back again, proving how beautiful July and August really are! You can see more from Bonnie on her blog!

"This year garden's suffered through an early spring drought.   I was fearful it would stunt the flowers and vegetables but fortunately I was wrong! The photos shared today have all been taken in July and August of this year.  The vegetable garden has been prolific and allowed us to eat almost daily from its harvest. The lower or secret garden is always increasing in size. New cultivars of hosta have been planted and grass has been turned into additional planting beds. We have completed a walking path through the wooded area of our property which ends at our bank barn."

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
