Flowers of the day
I hope you have enjoyed a good Shabbat. In any case, may these penstemon give you a lift.
This weekend the peak temperatures are at or just above 100 degrees (F.). I panicked this morning. I did not water the garden last night because I counted on doing it this morning. I usually am up by 7:30 on Saturday mornings. Today I slept until almost 9 a.m. My nephew and godson's high school graduation was slated for 10. I barely had time to shave, shower, dress, and get there. No watering. When I got home midafternoon I watered the plants, even though it is the worst time of day to do so. I did not dare let them wait any longer. I have lost some plants this week but with as many as I have planted one must count on some losses. "Failure to thrive" is a term one might apply to all living things. All in all, not too many losses at this point.
After 7 p.m. I ventured forth with the camera and took almost four dozen photos. These were among them.
