An unlikely August

When the anemones stop blooming I'll cut off the flowering stalks and feed them and perhaps they'll bloom again, when they are supposed to. You never know. 

 Nothing I can do about the beautiful Abyssinian gladiolus. When it's over, it's over. 

I have planted more fennel.

My sweet evening moths in the evening agastache have been identified as Mythimna unipuncta  - armyworm egg layers. The caterpillars of famine and drought and climate change. I had not heard the name since my South African childhood, when armyworms were a thing of horror in the Free State, leaving nothing but brown in their wake.

There it is.
