Outback, the Siloam variety is especially gorgeous.
The liatris (aka Kansas Gay Feather) is blossoming. The goldfinches love the seeds from these. Peeking out from behind is a little bit of phlox, called Laura.
The Russian Sage is at its best, and some pink Bee Balm and liatris look nice with it. Please ignore the fact that my bird bath needs cleaning.
Most importantly to Ginny and Weasley, the parsley is blossoming, getting ready to make a lot of nice, new parsley plants.
The Black-Eyed Susan's are telling the story of the week. There is just not enough water to go around. Our city has a water ban in effect. We are on a private well, not city water, but I still don't like to overuse it. Having a well go dry is no fun.
The most important part of the garden this week.
I live in New England. The temperature on my deck should never read 103°F! Hope you have a wonderful, and cool, rainy weekend (at least that is what I am hoping for!).
