three images from yesterday
Buttons, globes and spires in a layered tapestry that is both dense and airy.
A leaning spire of Veronicastrum v. Fascination frames a stand of Achillea m. ‘Terracotta’ and Helenium a. ‘Mardi Gras’
Verbena hastata and Helenium Mardi Gras
Calendula ‘Mayan Orange’ with Petunia integrifolia, Sedum ‘Hab Gray’, Asclepias tuberosa and Nasturitum ‘Vesuvius’ just visible in the background.
Rudbeckia hirta ‘Autumn Colors’ blooming it’s head off.
Cosmos bipinnatus ‘Dazzler’ just unfurling in the morning. From afar it looks nearly black. It opens the deepiest red of all the red bipinnatus Cosmos, but is hard to find in seed catalogs today. An early bloomer.
Hemerocallis ‘Prairie Blue Eyes’ and Asclepias tuberosa
