August 2021 blooms, amaranth, and a begonia

I had a lovely time watching a hummingbird this morning but have no pictures of it. The blooms are vibrant in the morning light, but everything is starting to get to that point where it might tip over the edge of the august sloping downward. This begonia is doing well outside, we will see if I can keep it alive over the winter this year.

This gorgeous airy plant is a Rocky Mountain Bee Balm. There is a bee on the other side of this bloom above.

This white blooming hosta above is really beautiful. Below is the red amaranth with the seed just starting to show. I wish I liked the taste of it better than I do. It isn’t bad, but I think it tastes too much like dirt (or “earthy” as a friend of mine more politely calls it).
