|Boltonia 'Jim Crockett' continues to be a happy camper. It has bloomed for weeks now.|
|Nasturtiums are still climbing into the inkberry hollies.|
|Bottlebrush buckeyes still bloom even though the leaves are a little scorched.|
|The purple intensity of 'Forest Pansy' redbud is finally washing out a little, |
but looks kind of jewel-like now.
|Nothing washed out about the clear intense red of lobelia cardinalis.|
|'Chiffon' Rose of Sharon is awash in frilly blooms.|
|Geraniums bloom on and on. They haven't stopped all summer.|
|Black eyed Susans, daisies, and a pink fall anemone murmur among themselves |
on a hot afternoon.
But isn't it too early for the anemone?
It's Anemone tomentosa 'Robustissima' and it blooms in early fall. This is, I think, mid summer.
Yes, it is still mid summer, I'm sure.
It's hot and I am tired.
A nap perhaps, on the shaded porch, as summer sails on.
