This little blue storybook house with its shiny red door and matching mailbox is sweet find for Ruby Tuesday in St. Paul. Summer's lease hath all too short a date.
These Cardinal Flowers are growing in a rain garden near the lake, needing to keep their roots wet. They remind me of Indian Paintbrush found out west but are a more vibrant blue red. A bit of trivia: they're named after the red robes worn by Catholic cardinals and they aren't terribly prolific since they are pollinated by hummingbirds!
