Our lilies are all blooming including this "black" one that looks mostly burgundy to me.
Celosia in the shade under the back deck. These plants are considered medicinal as they are used for treating a host of symptoms. Also, the leaves, which taste like spinach, are sometimes added to soups and stews in Mexico, especially. I haven't tried them yet.
Pink impatiens, also under the deck.
This little Carolina Wren had a nest in one of my flower pots. I missed the maiden flight of the lil birdlets as it rained nearly everyday since they hatched.
Hope you're staying cool. o.o
