Clouds left over from the night's thundershowers depart about 6:30 a.m.
The sun rises above the trees and throws its light across the vegetable garden. (Whoo-hoo, look at that corn growing!)
Tiger lily buds drip with moisture.
Phlox catches the light.
Buds swell on the 'Casa Blanca' lilies.
The light plays off all the moisture in the air. And off those big puffs of Arctic blue willow (center).
Sea holly (eryngium) almost looks like an alien plant in this light.
Bee balm 'Raspberry Wine' snuggles with some lily buds.
