Today is unusually hot at about 32 degrees. Lovely if you have the sea to look at, less so elsewhere. My view is not of the sea but of the garden border. To help cool you down I have decided to share the pictures I took yesterday morning as they are soft and hazy and misty.

The flower heads are forming on the Eupatorium but I have noticed that the leaves are drooping today in the heat, better give him a can of water later. (Must be a him? joe pie weed).

The golden oats of Stipa gigantea are really golden now, such a great plant if space allows.

Calamagrostis Karl Foerster is also looking good, upright with burgundy seed heads. I have had to stake a couple of them this year as they took a battering by the high winds a couple of weeks ago.
