June 28: gardening in the rain

Today was a perfect day to move plants around and to spend a good amount of time in the garden: the temperature was about 72 ℉ with a light drizzle all day long. I transplanted a few plants, including two Russian sages, refilled our flower boxes, and planted lantana and artemisia, all without worry of shocking them by planting them in the heat of summer.

The overcast sky and cool sprinkles kept me comfortable while I spent most of the day outside. I liked not overheating while I was out there in almost-July.

The photos aren’t great since they’re from my phone instead of my real camera, but I wanted to grab photos of some of the stuff in bloom.
