Blogpost number 100!!!

Wow..  This is the 100th post I’ve written since beginning the blog in March of 2014.  I feel like I should do something very special, but what I need to do is a rain dance.  We haven’t had significant rain since mid-August, and it has been a real struggle keeping the plants alive.  Thunderstorms promised for tonight and tomorrow may help and at least the heat wave will be broken.  The garden and I will sigh with relief.

The morning light was quite nice, so I grabbed a few photos before it got really hot out (93 yesterday).

Boltonia, asters, mums, fall salvias, grasses, cannas, … there is still much to come.   And if we can have some rain please, all these lovely plants will thrive.
