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).
Allium, birdbaths and succulents

Dad’s pink dahlia and Verbena bonariensis
A trio of cherry tomatoes
Butterfly on Verbena
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.
