Aging gracefully


Here’s the very same bellflower (Campanula spp., perhaps the common garden bellflower C. rapunculoides) taken this morning; note the almost complete absence of the “hairs” I saw three mornings ago.

Clear, almost cloudless sky this morning. Heavy dew still drenches my shoes if I wander out much before noon. Life is good.

    This looks very much like my balloon flower that grows outside my door and has lasted since July. But this bell flower is more elongated, both in and before blooming. Same family?
