It was cool and cloudy this morning, but turned sunny and pleasantly warm around 1:00 PM, so I decided to go down to the Pt Defiance Garden to see what had changed since I was last there two weeks ago. Remarkably, very little had changed.
The roses were still going strong, looking in remarkably good shape considering the recent rain. New buds seemed to indicate this beauty is not ready to fade yet:
Some of the earlier varieties of dahlias continue to flourish,
and some of the flashier, late-season varieties are blooming now, too, like pink and yellow variety,
or this even larger yellow dahlia.
It’s a great place to be, which is probably why there were so many people there taking in the sunshine and flowers.
