VIVID JULY

july brings a cacaphony of color. here is a green metallic bee on sneezeweed (helenium)...
a profusion of blue passion flowers on the deck...
the deck, the usual suspects in a line-up...
passion flower 'pura vida' is a spectacle in bright sunshine...
echincea in the potager...
a new toad lily in the front yard...
the night blooming cereus had 3 buds this summer, and i think this one bloomed. i didn't stay up late enough to see it open, and the other 2 buds wilted. i hope it will have another bud this year.
death-star allium with an incoming at 3 o'clock...
champagne currants illuminated... another sad tale this year, with too much rain...
crocosmia 'lucifer' does it's thing regardless of the weather...
japanese blood grass, illuminated...
rainbow chard harvest... yum!
