Drought and blooms
The drought here continues and even the dandelions are wilting! No one has a green lawn these days...
In shady areas things are still alive. The clematis have taken a beating though and are pretty much finished for the season. The grasses look fine and I always enjoy them.
Persicaria polymorpha has pretty much ended, but it has a pink hue that looks nice with the ninebark.
A pineleaf penstemon is looking happy near some grasses.
Gentians are starting to bloom as well. They like the sun.
Nearby more orange, some crocosmia begins to bloom.
New plants were watered in last night:
The Angelica gigas are hard to photograph as they're in full sun right now.
