The big garden is coming into its peak with both perennials and annuals providing a riot of color. Pink Coneflowers (Echinacea purpurea), Sunflowers (Helianthus annuus), blue Globe Thistle (Echinops ritro), fluffy pink Astilbe taquettii, blazing red Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’, yellow, red and orange Daylilies (Hemerocallis), blue, pink and white Love-in-a-mist (Nigella sativa) and white Flowering Tobacco (Nicotiana alata) make up the bulk of what you can see in the above photo.

With all the warmth and rain we’ve had this week, things are really looking flush. Summer is such a sweet time of year around here!
