Just wanted to share a little sampling of what is blooming right now.
Rudbeckia with small orange zinnia. Love how the center of zinnia is the same hue of yellow as the black eyed susan's petals.
My huge old wheel barrel planter is cranking still. I never regret spendin the $5 on a six pack of wave petunias.
This great rudbeckia, from seed this year- most likely from my neighbor, although I put a few seeds in places, too.
Pink "Prime Minister" Phlox blooms well in less than a half day's sun.
Bonica rose giving me a great second show for the season.
So glad I spent the 50 cents on this cleome 4 pack.
My favorite spot to watch for hummingbirds- they love the honeysuckle on the arbor, the bee balm, and the tall white nicotiana.
Heuchera 'Palace Purple' has a nice long bloom period, and looks great in both sun and shade for me.
This rose, Pearly Gates, is in a container on the back porch- so this bloom is right in my face when I sit on my porch.
This butterfly bush brings all the pollinators to the yard!
Also on the back porch, this abultion (aka flowering maple)- gosh, I've probably had this one for 6 years now, in the same pot... NEVER disappoints.
