It has been hot and sticky for the last few days (26°C), and today we are back to the rain showers.  The garden is thriving.  Both flowers and vegetables are doing nicely. 

The asters look very pretty in the front bed and are producing more blossoms than the same plants growing on the north side.  I'm considering moving these particular plants to the front next spring.

Painted Daisies

I've also planted some flowering kale and red and yellow snapdragons.
