Storm

We had a rain/hail storm last night. The garden is intact, sun is out, temperature is cool and the air crisp!
We are now having sustained 40 mph winds and wind gusts over 50 mph. I was surprised I was able to get any photos today because of the wind. I bought the Moonlit Water iris in late summer last year - this is the first time it has bloomed. In my experience with Snapdragons in Texas, I buy them in the fall and plant them with them blooming and then they come up again in spring and bloom again - but usually don't make it through the summer heat. At least this way, I get two seasons out them.
