This evening, after a blistering day of heat, I was out back taking some shots of my soon-to-be-finished garden. Although one could be fooled that Summer will never end--what with the lingering and relentless temps--the plants are more clever and are already making seed pods instead of new buds.
So, for a last hurrah of blooming loveliness, in no particular order:
Dahlia (see the honey bee?) --
Black-eyed Susan --
Sounds like Nirvana to me...
