After six to eight inches of rain it has recovered wonderfully!
My lovely lime lights suffered from the dry heat

I'll let the sedum stand until frost kills them then possibly use the flower heads to decorate for outdoor Christmas decor. I used to let them up all winter but discovered I like the beds better without.
PS...I found a skeleton of a mole today -
wonder if the chewing gum did him in?
