We've had several hot and muggy days but I can get out early with an iced coffee for a walky with the dogs before it gets stifling. I've been bothered this summer either by bug bites or poison ivy. Tomorrow late morning I'll see my dermatologist for my semiannual skin cancer screening and I'm really looking forward to it. I have one very bad silver dollar sized wound on my right ankle caused by a combination of a scratch infected by poison ivy - maybe. My skin is thinner and my wounds heal more slowly one of the perks of being fortunate enough to get older.
I've no idea where this late season poppy came from.
Tall and lovely a perfect volunteer.
I've never had Coreopsis until I moved up north and found some deeply discounted plants at Walmart. They've changed my mind about the genus.
Found recently in the discard pile and adopted. No name.
Hosta montana aureomarginata - probably
Striptease - probably
Even without 'names', the Hosta are really enjoyable to watch grow and flower - something I never, ever, thought I would say about the old fashioned 'plantain lilies'!
