I waited patiently for the hot weather to end and the trade-off is perfect temperatures with lots of moisture.
The waxy leaves of the St. John Wort hold each drop as if it were a precious diamond. The spider web that swings between the long leaves of my Solomons Seal also captures the crystal pearls of rain. It has become a slide of drops.The rose above will not bloom again. I must cut it back in a few months when the weather is much crueler. The garden needs tidying, but I am more compelled to take photos and I excuse my procrastination and pretend it is a desire to keep the insect homes safe until even colder weather comes...perhaps until spring.
