This article launches a new feature at All Things Plants. On the 15th of each month I will highlight plants blooming here at Cottage-in-the-Meadow Gardens. I'll have photos and will discuss the plants featured. You're invited to discuss these plants, too, but just as important, you're encouraged to show us what's blooming in your garden each month. I'll also have a monthly contest called "Name that Bloom." The first person to correctly identify the plant will have a photo of his/her choice published and featured in the following month. Be sure to check out this month's mystery flower at the end of this article.

|56 days of 100 + temps , no measurable rain since May..........supplementing with well water where I can protects the roots but not necessarily the plants or blooms. These Datura dug from the wilds a few years back are alive and well!|

|Great photos, Jackie! Thanks for sharing. 56 days--unbelievable! And no measurable rain since May! My wife and I have been grumbling about the fact that we've had no measurable rain in the last four weeks. Kinda puts our problem into perspective!|
Leave it up to native plants. They turn out to be the real survivors when the chips are down.
