HOT, DRY JULY

the veggies love this hot, dry july... brugmansia 'pink beauty' echos the shape of the trees behind...echinacea 'coconut lime' is loving the weather...
pumpkins are making blossoms all over...
a few little butternut squashes are growing larger...

helenium 'mardi gras' is the fireworks this year (i'll divide it next spring or it'll take over!)
flowers and fruits abound...
the tomatoes, foreground, love this weather, but have yet to ripen.
the cat birds continue to meow at me for trespassing in their territory!

Love your brugs, I'm dying to try either them or datura, but I don't know how to get started. I bought datura seeds, but no luck. They didn't even come up!

Hi Em,
just wanted to tell you people are loving the cards and potager images you sent...
The 4 seasons one is really blowing peoples minds here in the subtropics where seasons are so hard to perceive by comparison.
So your presence at Homage to the seed is greatly appreciated!
ciao,
Sophie

*Gasp* That helenium pic just stopped me in my tracks, em ! GORGEOUS ! The Echinacea snap ain't too shabby either ! ;)
Squash looking lovely and healthy ! Potager looking great ! :)

Sorry about the late comment. July sure did cradle the summer crops.
