Verbena Bonariensis in the evening sunshine
There's sunshine on the flowerbeds late this evening but we were rained out of our dahlia planting. I thought we were going to get lucky. It seemed that all of the rain cells that moved through the area today missed our part of the world. Right after dinner I went upstairs to change into gardening clothes when I heard the first drops on the roof. They quickly escalated and within minutes it was pouring! Rained out at the last minute. The good news is it didn't start right after we got down to the garden. So tonight is a night of rest, maybe just what the gardener needed.
