Moonbeam Coreopsis. Aren’t they pretty? Or at least they were on June 4th. Now they are a shriveled mass of black fernlike leaves.
Delicate astilbes flourished in the springtime and early summer rains. Who knew they would be the last rains for weeks?
Look, there’s even water on the leaves on this nandina. June 4th was such an innocent happy time, with flowers blooming, and rain falling.
I’m sorry. I promise that next week’s Garden Tuesday will be more upbeat. Unless we get no rain for another week. And then I may have to title this Dead Garden Tuesday.
