Monocot border

The weather has been tough this year, but I never need to remind myself what is good about being outside and working outside and experiencing this year at Brooklyn Botanic. It was hot today in the Monocot border, but that border is out of this world right now. It's so different than it was with all the alliums and bulbs of spring. Now it's outrageous with the Cannas and lilies and daylilies and flowering grasses. It's all big leaves and bright colors and fragrance. It reminds me of Hawai'i with it's almost unreal loveliness.
