30 July 2007

Regarding the weather...

Well, July was a heck of a lot better than May and June. In general, the weather was relatively cool (mostly in the 70s ┬║Fahrenheit) and we received between 3.5 and 4.0 inches (90 to 100 millimeters) of rain. The latter figure is at or slightly above the historical average, which is a great improvement over the terribly dry May and June that we had.

Currently blooming flowers include Rudbeckia 'Indian Summer' (Gloriosa Daisy), Echinacea purpurea (Purple Coneflower), unknown Rosa cultivars (Roses), Buddleja davidii 'Black Knight' (Butterfly Bush), Hemerocallis fulva 'Kwanso' (Double 'Common' Daylily) and a number of wildflowers. I'll try to get some pictures up in the next couple of days.
