Where did July go? Already we have slipped into August and the dog days of summer.
Summer is winding down when the rudbeckia opens. 'Goldsturm', a reliable variety above flaunts her saucy petals in the front garden.
The butterfly garden has evolved to delicate pinks and lavender with the fragrant butterfly bush a favourite of many insects. Hardly any butterflies this year other than the cabbage white.
While on vacation last week we stopped at a roadside picnic area for lunch and I found clumps of wild bergamot along the fence line and a few stands of teasel.
I'm linking with Mosaic Monday, thank you Mary for hosting.
