No BluebellMel your penstemon will be fine.  It's time to do that now.  I cut mine hard to leave 6" or so of stems.

Maybe a poor clone Clare if fragrance is weak.

Cut grass, planted hosta delivery and thoroughly enjoyed the sunshine.  The forecast rain and strong winds didn't happen today here anyway.  My face is hot from the sun
