Mid-summer blooms

You know what I heard on the radio this afternoon?  You’ll never guess, so I will tell you.  Summer is over??? So, let me see.  We had one of the longest winters ever, one of the worst springs ever (basically non-existent), a few weeks of summer and now it’s over??  The weatherman was saying that because we’ve cooled into the 70s that is the reason that summer is over.  Okay then.

But I still have blooms!!  And I want to share them.  The pink cone flowers are about at their peak.

One bright yellow day lily:

One purple balloon flower:

And I just about missed the peak of my Queen of the Prairies!  GASP!!  But I managed to get a few good shots.  I hope you enjoy them.  They are one of my faves.
