Flowers in bloom, 7/28
These are some pictures that I took earlier today -
spotted yellow Lilies - I'm not sure if these are the type usually called "Tiger Lilies" or not. The little white flowers to the right are from a erigeron/fleabane that was allowed to grow and that rewarded us with many small but pretty flowers.
Bright pinkish/magenta/purple Lilies - these produced only a couple of flowers last year, but they are exploding into color this season! Some Phlox is also flowering to the right -
A wider view of one of the garden beds. The yellow Lilies and Fleabane are in the foreground, along with smaller orange-red lilies of an old fashioned type. Behind them are some Malva/Mallow, white Liatris, Yarrow, Rudbeckia, and Echinaceae/Coneflowers.
White and lavender colored Cleomes forming the center of one of our new flower beds. Behind them and to the right a bright yellow African Marigold and a young Butterfly Bush are peeking out. To the lower left is a Gaillarda, with Petunias in the lower right.
