I’m a bit late on posting the Tuesday View, but though the photo was taken early Tuesday morning, time got away from me until today. Better late than never, I hope.
Even though I think not much has changed, I look at last week’s photo and see that of course, change is constant. The biggest change is the sunflower has begun to bloom and it is a beauty. I featured it in my Silent Sunday post, in case you missed it.
Along the back, purple, pink and white cleome (C. hassleriana) mix with white, dark and light pink cosmos (C. bipinnatus ‘Sensation Mix’), and dots of zinnias (Z. elegans ‘County Fair Mix’).
Calendulas (C. officinalis) are mixed in the middle left with zinnias. On the right, through the middle, pink and white phlox (P. paniculata) continue to bloom, along with white flowering tobacco (Nicotiana alata), pink coneflowers (Echinacea purpurea), and the perpetual lamb’s ears (Stachys byzantina).
We’ve had several nights this past week where the temperatures dipped into the low 40sF (5C), which the heat lovers, like zinnias, do not like. I’m savoring the last of my garden blooms, as I know the end will come eventually.
I’m linking with Cathy at Words and Herbs, joining participants taking weekly photos of the same garden over the course of the growing season to note its evolution.
