|Ornamental grasses strut their stuff|
|The garden is winding down for the season, but there are still pops of colour here and there.|
Have a great week, everyone ~ K.S.

|Pour white wine vinegar in, making sure to cover all of the berries.|
|Set aside for one week to 10 days.|
| Package that vinegar in sterilized bottles - A funnel will come in handy for this. These are great gifts for foodies, but make sure to keep one for yourself!|
Try this great flavour accent on salads, in soups and even on ice cream!
Vinegar is gluten free.
If you missed raspberry season and now have a hankering for what I now refer to as 'summer in a bottle', please visit my Etsy shop - I have this product available for purchase.
Enjoy and thanks for visiting! ~K.S.

Thank goodness for our late bloomers. I have to ask, where would our pollinators bed down for the night, otherwise?!
And everything is late blooming this year. Normally that white phlox is pretty much finished, yet it's still going strong... (At least until a big old frost comes along, that is. ;)
|The path through the garden|
Here's hoping your Friday flowers into a beautiful weekend.

|Succulents in a frame - Vertical gardening at it's best!|
Look for a follow up post here soon on how to DIY this for your own home!
Of course, I'd be happy to create one for you, too. :)
|I just love Burrow's tail - They really make quite a statement! Can hardly see the container. You know they're happy plants when they fill out so completely.|
Happy Labour Day - Cheers for now ~ Karen
