Yes, other things besides daylilies are blooming

I must admit that the daylilies  really hog the limelight in July, and they are still going strong.  However, there were lots of other beautiful blossoms these last few weeks and  its time to take a look back

This plant is a Cimicifuga  racemosa : also known as Actaea or Bugbane or Black snakeroot.. Mine came from friend Martha about 8 yrs ago and was just 10 inches tall.  Now it grows over 8 feet.
