Midsummer blooms

I wish my yard was an explosion of color, but right now it is a bit bare bones. That does not mean there is nothing blooming. The flowering plants just aren't arranged in a densely cohesive manner... yet. I'm working on that! Meanwhile, here are the colors that are there.

Mmmm.. lemony daylily

Hibiscus syriacus 'Aphrodite', a.k.a. Rose of Sharon


Queen Anne's Lace (being eradicated)

Impulse purchase #1

Impulse purchase #2

Red Scarlet Zinnia

Squash blossom

Cucumber blossoms

Sunflower of some kind

"Ditch" daylily

Mmm... apricot daylily

Fleabane - it just keeps going!

'Betty Corning' past its prime

Limelight hydrangea just getting started

Black eyed Susan

Blazing star (with blue false indigo seed pods)

Zagreb coreopsis - going strong

Route 66 coreopsis - petering out


Thunbergia Alata 'Sunrise'

Agastache 'Blue Fortune'

Purple coneflower

Avant-Garde Clematis

One of the few milkweeds without aphids
