All this heat and rain have created some interesting sights in my container garden this summer. The sedums have bloomed some of which resemble something from a sci-fi movie! The baby Madrona tree that we purchased in June has grown 6 new leaves, in spite of the fact that the fellow we bought it from said they were very slow growing. Me thinks it likes where it's planted! And the beautiful blue morning glories are creating an ever-changing show for us daily. They bloom in the early morning and the blooms are gone by nightfall, only to be replaced by another set of blooms each morning....very cool!
