July Flowers

 Happy July! If we survive this heatwave with any flowers remaining I'll be totally amazed.  Over 100F for 3 days in a row.  At least the bees are happy.
 So are the butterflies.
 Second try at growing this plant, Lotus Vine, I have it in a less hot and sunny spot so hopefully it will survive.  Isn't the shading on these buds beautiful.  I'd love to try dyeing something to look like this.
I like how speckled it is on the outside, and how the flower shape changes so much as it opens up from the flame-like bud.
