August in the backyard

The back garden seems to be thriving despite the fact that I've been away for more than half of August.  Alex and Karl kept it watered in our absence.

The Henry clematis suffered a mishap a few years ago, so I planted two replacements last season. The replacements seem to have evaporated, while Henry I has rebounded.

The native bunchberries I planted in the spring are also showing off white flowers with a pinkish tinge. Small and delicate, they seem to be liking their new home near the cedar.

This is the first year I've actually seen berries on the Jack-in-the-Pulpit. I hope this beauty stays healthy and grows a colony!
