Last year, after considerable agonizing, I ended our CSA program and indulged in planting more flowers. This year, it has been bloomin' crazy around here. Here's some of the blossoming going on these days.
Our c mixed collie Zinnia and her namesake flowers.
I planted several kinds of liatris (blazing star) for the bees and monarchs. ___
Dianthus, ageratum, Salvia, Verbena
Hardy hibiscus, with huge 9-inch diameter blossoms, and cleome.
Last night, a dramatic sky.
