One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Front beds in Adelphi just after sunup
We're having an idyllic hiatus between the hottest June ever and next week when temperatures are predicted to be near 100F Monday through Friday. The plants have responded. That's the good news. The bad news is that WSSC, who supplies our water, has detected a potential break in an 8' main and has decreed that there will be no outside water use for the next few days. It's working out now, but the humidity is low and its going to get hot so we're going to need water.
