Remember how gorgeous these horsemint appeared back in April?
Now those purple beauties look downright beastly.
As do a bunch of other wildflowers in the Houston area. The summer’s heat definitely is taking its toll on our flora.
Fortunately, some plants thrive this time of year. Like sunflowers.
And black-eyed Susans (no relation).
Is it any coinky-dink that the wildflowers now flourishing are yellow . . . like the sun that beats down on us and heats the temperatures into the 90s every day?
I think not!
