The second half of the year has been brutal on the garden. Heat, drought, deer, and rabbits have been winning over the Flower Guy. These measly mums are all that is left of my perennial Chrysanthemums. They are pretty little flowers but pale in comparison to last year.
But as Chicago Cub fans are used to saying, "Wait 'til next year".

Perovskia atriplicifolia. There is a large patch of Russian sage by the mail box. I cut it back about twice a year and it explodes back almost immediately. It has upright grayish silver stems and tubular lavender flowers. When crushed the stems and leaves give off a pungent odor much like other sages.
