Just a Few Late July Flowers

Alaskan Spring
Bittersweet Honey
Butterfly Bush
A wayward Columbine that decided to bloom, long after its time.
Pure and Simple continues to stun with gorgeous bloom after gorgeous bloom on sturdy scapes.  It's definitely become one of my favorites.
Yesterday's rain refreshed everything.  Today, it's warm and sunny again, but things seem to have an added glow.  Enjoy your day.

Good Morning, Louise!

As always, you have such beautiful flowers and I can never remember the names. :( Maybe that Columbine just had a late start - awfully pretty!

Have a great day!

Your recent rain refreshed and replenished all the flowers...they are beautiful.
HOT HOT HOT hear possible 105 real temp before sundown.
Mom has all the shades pulled down in the front of the house. I'm in their very dark room snoozing.

Hi Louise!! I really love the columbine--We had it when we lived in Alaska, and I miss it, it's so intricate, simple and beautiful!
