I was up early for a little garden tending before church. The new white monkey flower has come back for a second bloom. A delight to see it becoming established, just in time for the rainy season.

I trimmed back the two butterfly bushes to let them rest, leaving a core and trimming off the lower shoots. They have always responded well to pruning – my kind of plant. Next fall I may need the loppers to cut back the central stems.
