A shorter lily, slightly different shape
Amazingly, this is the same short lily...it fades to a pretty pink after it's been blooming for a while. The blooms have lasted for a couple of weeks.
Another one in a lovely bright orange
Hemerocallis (Daylily) Cleo. It was the first daylily to bloom. This a one of my favorites and my most vigorous grower.
Bright Summer Phlox, daylilies, monarda and cranesbill geranium
Monarda (bee balm or bergamot) The bees, butterflies and hummingbirds love this flower. I have it in several different colors
Delphiniums, gloriosa daisies and a pink mystery flower planted as a seed mix in our vegetable garden last year. My best guess is Collinsia, but the plant is much shorter in my plant encyclopedia. Can anyone tell me the name of this flower?
The Gloriosa daisies (black-eyed Susans) and Shasta daisies are blooming madly. They always put on a great show!
Coreopsis and achillea (yarrow-Cerise Queen)
Close up of the achillea..lovely color!
Faithful Pete, keeping me company
I love the color of this delphinium!
The picture above of the this same delphinium with the evening primrose in the background was supposed to be included in this post, but my finger slipped and I hit the enter key, instead of the key above it, which lets you queue photos for a post.
Apparently most of the plants loved all the rain we've had because they're blooming extravagantly this summer!
