 Well, here we are in Missouri in very hot
 July with temps today close to 100 degrees.
  I think I'll stay inside but I did run out
 and take a few photos of the garden
 this morning:

 Yes, purple seems to be
 in charge
of color right now.

I have allowed some Queen Anne's
Lace in my garden in one area
so that I have
it for bouquets.

I hope you are staying cool.

Queen Ann's Lace and parsley are perfect caterpillar food for the Black Swallowtail Butterflies. The flower photos make it appear it is not so hot. But the summer the temps have been so extreme. Glad to see your garden is florishing.

My favorite color in the garden, yours looks stunningly beautiful.
The intense heat has been a flower disaster this year, daily watering, and the flowers have just about shriveled up despite.
Thank you for sharing your beauty.

How do you find the Queen Anne’s lace? My friend said it didn’t grow well for her. I used it for a wedding and it was gorgeous, so I’m wanting to give it a try.

Lovely photos of your garden. I am sorry about the 100.° I don't think that I could handle it. It's been cool and pleasant here. I was even able to work in my wee front garden for a while weeding and mulching. Enjoy those lovely purples and stay cool.

It’s been so hot here! Your garden is so lovely and I always love to visit. Having Queen Anne’s Lace for arrangements is such a good idea.
