August Garden

Foggy this morning.
The first few days of August and it is hot and muggy. Humidity high. Thanks goodness for A/C , not for the bills to follow.. Could whine about the weather but keep thinking come February these days will be a fond memory.
Southern Hibiscus is just starting to flower.
Frosty morn sedum Not 100 % happy with this plant , it is stretchy, flower heads more open then I would like. Wonder if it would do better if pruned once during growing season
Kong Sunflowers are flowering showing lots of branching with many seed heads to come.
Birds have been checking out the seeds to see if they are ready to eat yet.
This will sound odd but it smells like August in the garden... Anyone else think so?

August does have it's own smell, you're right. It's a "hot" smell, sometimes with a "green" side to it, like corn growing.
