Coolness and absence of heat and haste indicate fine qualities.

I can't remember the name of the top incredibly cool plant, maybe friend Mary remembers. The dragonfly image was taken in July 2001- I remember because it was a milestone summer. Nigella in the back garden- oh yes she's an eager reseeder. The fab origanum rotundifolia with purple sage- two of my favorite rose companions. Macleya cordata I fell in love with in the Nori and Sandra Pope garden that once graced Hadspen House in the UK. I had to have it- found it's invasive. Me on my first and only visit to the glorious Lake Tahoe- caught by friend Mary.
