Late July and finding something nice to cut is a real challenge. A week of soaring temperatures followed by a wonderful downpour last night did not really leave me many choices.
I should have been cutting phlox for three weeks. It has been lovely in the border, but as usual I waited until the rain had beaten it down. There are three shades here - names unknown. The spiky stuff is Agastache 'Ava' aka Hummingbird Mint and the dark leaves are Eupatorium rugosum 'Chocolate'.
So I moved it to a small table next to my chair. No more dew on the petals, but it's right here where I can enjoy it... now!
Small But Charming for hosting this little visit into many flowered homes today. If you haven't checked it out, please do. You are in for a treat!
