Thought I'd share a few favorites..
sunflower 'moulin rouge'
this photo doesn't do justice to the electric blue of salvia patens
cosmos 'giant tetra trianon'
jewels of opar 'kingwood gold'
Great photos! I really like that Sunflower. I have a Cambridge Blue Salvia that looks very similar to yours. It is a beautiful color, isn't it!
My salvia is called "blue angel" from park's seed. I'll bet they're pretty much the same as the cambridge.
Here's a couple more groovy annuals. (Can you tell I had a lot of space to fill before the WSown perennials fill in my new beds?)
The ever statuesque cardoon (with amaranth behind) -
.. and unusual celosia 'cramer's amazon' (from johnny's selected seeds). It just started blooming this week, but the plants are taller than me and a gorgeous bi-color leaf.
oh, very nice! I love 'sunnies' too-
but, for me, the last pic (celosia) is the 'best' :))
I love celosias- easy to w/s, beautiful strong plants, seeds easy to collect and they reseed! Just can't beat it!
thanks so much for posting,

Your Cosmos 'giant tetra trianon' has eye popping color!
What a great garden you have, I love the mix.
Lucky me, I have seeds for Moulin Rouge for next year. Can't wait.
Thanx for the compliments! I garden for my own enjoyment, but sure appreciate the occasional pat on the back. :-)
