Still Life in a Time of Drought

Our poor garden is still going even during our season of drought.  The gladiolas have fainted but the phlox and sunflowers are doing quite well.  Black-eyed susans are perky and the birds are taking baths in the heat.  At the birdbathBath time in AugustHere is the proof.
