Hot and bothered

It's hot, it's humid, and it's hard to get out into the garden. Nevertheless, the mid-summer perennials (astilbe, shasta daisies, and catmint) are celebrating the summer weather in full flower.

The sweet peas have been putting out a bloom here and a bloom there--how can they be so darn stingy?--as the lower portions begin to die off and the upper parts reach up to sunlight.

Early July and, like those sweet peas, I need to catch up on lost time!
