June 23, 2015.  This very moist weather of late has transformed my xeriscaped yard – mushrooms and even moss appearing.  The boneset has endured through the years with little assistance from me.  Some years blooms are abundant; a few years back I thought I’d lost it completely to the drought.  Never have I seen the stalks over 4 feet high.  This year – oh my!  As tall as I am, more stalks than ever, and blazing with blooms along the front fence, hanging over the sidewalk – thriving survivors surely posing for portraits.
