The native monarda (Monarda fistulosa) is blooming nicely. It is leaning a bit trying to get the most sun. We propped it up with some sticks and strings this afternoon. We had some blooming when Jekka was here in June and now the late summer (OMG) plants are blooming away. Having a long vacation in the middle of summer has thrown me completely for an herbal loop! I'm slowly finding all of the weeds that were just about to bloom. They can disguise themselves very well. There was one weed in the raspberries that was at least 7-1/2' tall and had a stem like a small tree trunk. Had to make sure I got that one out before it sprang forth and multiplied! Rain tomorrow. Hope to get my handouts for Seven Springs finished. Will show you more garden photos tomorrow.
