Yesterday morning was so cool (in the 70s!) -- so I sat in front of my flower bed and sketched. The Purple Cone Flowers are in bloom as are the bright yellow Rudbekias....As the day grew warmer, I gave up my time to paint and gardened instead -- watered everything -- we're back to drought conditions, and I pruned back some of those incredible plants that seem to thrive on dry, hot weather.
The thunderstorms threatened last night -- but we're still rainless, despite all the rumblings. My blueberries have dried to wee stones ....and we're still praying for rain.
