Early Morning In The Garden

The severe winter was rough on this Euphorbia ‘Blackbird’ but I cut it all the way back in early spring. It has been looking strong ever since. There are flowers, but I became distracted by the colorful young leaves this morning.

Salvia guaranitica ‘Black and Blue’ is barely blooming this summer, but a few were encouraged to give it try after this week’s rain.

While I was photographing the Black and Blue saliva a handsome dragonfly landed nearby for several seconds before dashing off.

The heat suits the zinnias just fine. This one looked particularly fresh in the morning light.
