every season is a good season to visit the center for urban horticulture, but late summer is particularly lovely. and it's such a hidden gem--it seems that even long-time seattleites don't know that this place exists. what a shame. why aren't you here?
you know the summer is coming to a close when the black-eyed susans are starting to fade.
but the dahlias are still lovely, no?
and the tall grasses sound nice rustling in the breeze.
the black and blue sage is also still going strong. this is one of my favorite perennials.
the grass is still green in the serviceberry grove.
and the shadows are long.
this flower-that-looks-like-a-poppy-but-isn't-a-poppy-at-all catches the sun nicely.
and the sweet vegetable patch set in the middle of a field is churning out some pretty tomatoes. i would say they were tasty if i had sampled one, but that wouldn't be a nice thing to do, would it?
but let's just say hypothetically, it was pretty tasty.
