My Ladies Mantle after a rainy night

I have always loved how the serrated edges of the ladies mantle leaves capture the tiny raindrops and the centers cup the big ones. Mine are thriving this year even though they looked awful at the end of last year's summer heat. They missed the cool nights most long-lived perennials prefer. I missed them too!

I lost my ladies mantle to the heat last year:( It didn't come back.

Ah - fresh raindrops on young Ladies' Mantle. Nothing prettier! I haven't had any in years. Maybe I'll have to take a trowel to my friend's garden...
