All day yesterday and through the night a gentle rain fell on the garden. This afternoon the dog and I, and a multitude of mosquitoes, took a tour to see what’s what.

The petite hostas rimmed in lime green have lovely purple blooms.

A few delicate asters have opened. They will bloom into the fall and look lovely against a backdrop of autumn leaves.

Two years ago I planted a hibiscus that was a gift or random giveaway. Last year it graced me with two lovely pink blooms. This year there are no less than 80 blooms on it! I can’t wait for the spectacular show.
