The planters are brimming with colors. Silver dusty miller is trying to outdo the purple petunias, and the variegated green and white ivy is trailing perfectly. The angelonia wants to be the main character. In the wedding garden, the hummingbirds and butterflies are visiting regularly throughout the day, humming and fluttering around the pinks, reds, purples of the zinnias. The bachelor buttons are profusely blue, pink, white, dark red. Everything is holding its breath as the day approaches. We had a glorious rain yesterday, steady, not tumultous. You could almost hear the flowers sipping and lapping up the raindrops.
