Summer, it seems, has arrived with a vengence. After being chilly and damp for most of the spring it has become hot (highs in the mid-90s) and humid all of a sudden. To counter all that heat, I opted to pull up a couple of picures in shades of cooling purple.
Clematis crispa -- Blue Jasmine Leather-flower. (May 20th)
Scutellaria integrifolia -- Hyssop Skullcap. (June 3rd)
