It still looks like it could be something from Plan 9 From Outer Space…well, if they’d had any kind of a budget for that movie, that is.
I’m not sure I can say the same for the so-called Early Girl, which has plenty of fruit, but they all remain green.
We may have to get out the frying pan and make some fried green tomatoes, if this keeps up. Not that there’d be anything wrong with that.
The lavendar beebalm are so calmly beautiful. The color is so faint they sort of fade away at a distance. This may also come due the contrast with the neighboring gloriosa daisy and it’s hot flower colors. Still, the bees aren’t having trouble finding it.
This morning, this first sulphur cosmos blossom opened up wide and began to dance on the breeze.
There’s lots of buds on lots of others of these plants all up and down the fence, so this is a show that should go on into September. I love cosmos for that.
Thanks to some regular dead-heading, some of the daisy plants are putting up a second, lower wave of slightly smaller flowers. Still the happiest bloom I know, eh?
Here’s some more sunflowers, standing tall at a little over six feet and putting out more flowers every time I turn around. What fun these guys have been this year!
As the day began to fade, I decided to check out the scene at nearby Banks Street Beach. It’s a south-facing beach, which means the sunset actually happens over land, which is not quite as spectak as doing so over the bay, as I have been spoiled to enjoy at First Encounter in Eastham. But it was still a pretty great show.
[Technical difficulties: only now am I discovering that something went awry with the slideshow. Please stand by. Well, check back later–this may take a while. In the meantime: ]
