Do I really have to go out in the garden in the heat and the drought and the wildfire smoke and look for flowers that don't look like shit, so I can pretend to everyone that I actually still have a somewhat presentable garden that isn't burned to a crisp like the entire Trump family in whatever future Hell their souls will surely be consigned to?
|This Opuntia actually flowered on August 3, but the flowers are so fleeting, I wanted to record it here|
|Lost Id Dahlia, but it's a big 'un|
|Another Lost ID Huge Dinnerplate Dahlia, another big 'un|
|Dahlia 'Totally Tangerine'|
The Begonias are keeping me sane (and the definition of sane is debatable).
|Lobelia cardinalis 'Queen Victoria'|
|Ornamental Oregano 'Kent Beauty'|
|Allium wallichii ex China (from Far Reaches Farm)|
|Daucus carota 'Dara'|
|Echinacea 'White Swan' (and ubiquitous hose spoiling every view)|
|Eucomis 'Sparkling Burgundy'|
These Nasturtiums (all three flowers are on the same plant) are like the three stages of despair.
