When I went out in my garden for photos for this post, I was sure there would be none to find. I was wrong.Perennials
I had a White Swan echinacea a few years ago that looked to have been taken over by its purple babies. Now, this year, I have three white cone flower plants!
I have no idea what this plant is. It was labeled "Blue Lake" veronica.
I planted over a dozen Stargazer lilies, and I am left with three.
I always liked the way that the "Goldsturm" and the dwarf liatris looked together.Annuals
I got a few Zebrina malva plants from my parents a few years ago and they have been self seeding the same area ever since. I move them where I want them in the spring when they start popping up.
I didn't think that these Empress of India nasturtiums would ever bloom.
These touch-me-not volunteers are very welcome in my garden since they help combat the affects of the gas plant
Catchfly, one of my favorite volunteers.
Rudbeckia hirta, another of my favorite volunteers.
And, finally! My black eyed peas are blooming!
Go see what other gardeners are doing on the 15th of August over at May Dreams Garden's Garden Blogger Bloom Day
BTW- I am going out of town for a few days, but will catch up on your comments and all your blooms when I get back.
