Today in the garden...

It is has been very hot and humid and dry this Summer and I think it is taking a toll on the garden. And on the gardener, too. Oh, and also on Tiger (the cat). Poor Tiger. Life is so difficult, having to sprawl in the shade.

Some stuff still looks pretty cool, though. Like the Cypress Vine climbing the oak tuteurs that I made to go on either side of the front porch.

And the reflection of the Corkscrew Rush in the "pond."

A volunteer Sunflower is starting to form a bud. Is "architectural" the right word? Or "sculptural"? Whatever - it's interesting.

Yesterday's new acquisition - on sale for half price at New Garden Nursery. Very pretty. And more food for the bees and the butterflies.

Homeless Muscari bulbs waiting to be relocated. For some reason, this picture makes me think of Fall.

And, finally, a shade of bliss. Or bliss in the shade. Either way, I love it.

Have a beautiful day!
