Late Summer Flower Garden

My flower garden has not fared well this summer. The heat and drought took their toll, and if I hadn’t watered regularly, I think most of the garden would have died. Still going strong though is the native wildflower area on the west side of the house.

The Mexican hat looks better now than it did this summer.

Go figure.

The aromatic asters are fall bloomers and just getting started.

They’ll bloom until frost.

The yellow toadflax has bloomed off an on all summer.

And then there’s this wildflower, scientific name, kittius wildus.

Do you see it?

How about now?

Ah, there it is, Kitty, the wildest flower of all.
