More Garden Chatter

This is the butterfly garden we created to attract butterflies. The butterfly bushes haven't grown as big as they normally do, nor are they loaded with blooms. We had a rough rainy spring followed by a hot dry summer and many of the plants have suffered. We provide water in the birdbath there, as well as bee balm, hyssop, zinnias and cone flowers.

This is the trumpet vine I'm so enamored with. I've wanted one of these forever, and this year is shot up and over the new gate/arbor. I'm hoping to attract more hummingbirds now.
