humble flowers

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

It's not fall yet. But that's ok.
I was out in the garden today after ignoring it for a few weeks. Despite not watering, fertilizing, or weeding, the old standbys are in full bloom. I love the humble, sturdy varieties as much as the fragile short-lived ones because even with the sun beating down mercilessly, they don't let me down.
We have to have sunflowers outside the kitchen window every year. Makes me feel like I am in the south of France.
Echinacea. Getting a little bleached out, but still doing fine.
Coreopsis Moonbeam. I like the buttery shade of the Moonbeam hybrid.
Black-eyed susans are so carefree and bloom forever. Happy end of summer!
