I was out about a quarter after eight tonight. Higher up on Skyline there are whole fields of these lilies that bloom. It's just beautiful. The long flowered stalks bob up and down not because of the breeze but because of the numerous bees taking turns to get pollen. What a sight!

I was surprised to see hips formed already. Most plants haven't but along McPeak I saw several. Surprising in the semi-shade.

For the last few days the berries in the meadow have been ripening. We just had solstice so I'm surprised they are ripe so soon. There is a way to go yet, and most berries aren't ready, but I thought it interesting to note. Maybe it's the heat and no water.

Thimbleberries! I ate the ripest ones before I snapped a photo. They are still a little tart but I was glad to find a few that were ready to eat. I need to check my favorite stand near Water Creek.

Surprising to see these still blooming where nothing else is, but they are just about done. They are also growing in a shady creek bed where garden water still trickles through and lemon balm is growing.

It's a few days past St. John's Day but some Hypericum are still putting out buds. I harvested most of what I got this year weeks before but I thought it interesting that in the heat and with the lack of water, there are still new shoots and buds coming out.
