OUR WEATHER HERE IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST HAS BEEN CO-OPERATING QUITE NICELY THIS YEAR.
Here is an addition I made to this flower bed, a terra cotta pot stacked birdbath. Hopefully the birds will be enticed by the bright colors.
This is some crocosmia (Lucifer red) that I planted last year. I love the pop of red it gives the flower bed.
This is some pretty pink phlox. I also have some white phlox but it hasn't bloomed yet.
This is a daylily. I used to have a whole bunch of them but pulled out most because they got too greedy with the space and began invading other plant's territories.
This is a hydrangea in the back yard, the blue is so pretty. You don't see too many flowers in the blue family.
This hydrangea is in the front flower bed and is varying shades of purple.
With all the flowers in bloom I sometimes forget to cut some to enjoy in the house. Here is a mixture of lilies, liatris, salvia, astillbe, hydrangea and even a gladiola hiding in the back.
