We revamped the front flowerbed this past spring and planted perennials. However, spring was a passing thing and it turned hot early. I have been diligently watering, hoping the plant would take hold. Today, the Coral Reef Bee Balm flowered. Although it doesn't have anything to do with bees, it is supposed to draw butterflies. We'll see. I'm just happy the plants are thriving!

This weekend was Council Grove's festival, "Wa-shun-Ga Days." It is held every year to celebrate the town's involvement in being the last stop on the Santa Fe trail. The Kaw Nation used to live in the area during the mid-1800's. Each year they return to Council Grove to participate in the celebration.
