In the Rockets Red Glare

Our local "2nd of July" Fireworks Show was cancelled last night because of the rain. This morning, I found the bergamot blooming in the garden making its own kind of colorful explosion. I love the weirdness of this bloom and the scent is remarkable.

This photo and the previous one would look amazing next to each other.

Wow, what an eye you have! They do look like fireworks.
My brother-in-law pointed that out to me about fuschias one time too.

i love bee balm. I have a whole bunch in my front yard, it spreads quick and smells sooo good.

Oooh, bee balm! We have some of that in our garden as well. Doesn't it smell delicious?

Happy 4th!

Bergamot is one of my favourite herbs - I use it in hefty winter casseroles.
