The last week in July is typically hot and humid and this year is not an exception. I can tolerate heat and humidity as long as there is a breeze in the evening. Without the breeze simple garden tasks become a chore very quickly. Though the humidity is high, the soil dries quickly when the temps approach 100. I've contributed to plant stress by planting much to close but good deep watering at least twice a week seems to be working.
A plant that has been blooming for some time is Tall Verbena. This plant goes into overdrive when you deadhead or take cuttings. The tiny florets seem to have a light inside to me.
