We keep getting threatening skies, roiling clouds and thunderstorm warnings, but they pass by and we get no rain. Just under 2/10ths of an inch yesterday. Today, hot sticky and humid.
The shasta daisies are all blooming now. A second bloom on the geums has started. The orange milkweed is finally filling in and the drumstick alliums are opening up.
In the new garden along the west walk, the Ceanothus americanus plants ae blooming. They'll get much bigger, I think, in future years.
