What are dog days without a dog?
The picture above has dried seed heads of Black eyed Susans.
Shady spots still boast a few BES.
Butterflies and Zinnias enjoy hot sunny days.
I planted Lantana montevidensis and lilies;
Melampodium and Tithonia planted themselves.
A Gulf Fritillary enjoys Tithonia.
Licorice Plant and Persian Shield are good companions.
Buffy still enjoys a romp with her Teddy but there isn't much left of Teddy.
He lost all his stuffing, his limbs and most of his head.
Flowers and text are from the garden of Nell Jean at http://www.blogger.com/www.seedscatterer.blogspot.com in the hot, humid depths of Southwest Georgia USA. Join us in a glass of iced Ruby Tea, dark and barely sweet.
