Most everyone here is Michigan has had issues with the drought this summer, our grass has suffered, what started out to be beautiful green is now parched and brown. We do have under ground sprinkling but some areas just need good old fashion rain.
These Heuchera's have had it with just to much hot sun and not enough water.
My Hydrangea tree is huge this year so I guess it likes the heat, it does get plenty of water from the sprinkling system.
These Nasturtiums always seem to do well no matter what the weather, they add a decorative touch to salads, and can be eaten as well adding a light peppery taste to any kind of greens.
The butterflies have been fluttering all over this bush for days now but for some reason when I took this picture not one was to be seen. I so enjoy the summer flowers and how they adorn so many yards. We do need rain badly, not just for yards and flowers but the farmers are fighting a battle with crops withering before their eyes and in the long run that will effect all of us. So pray for some soaking rains to come soon.
