Here's a little Anna's hummer that has been visiting several times daily since the crocosmia 'Lucifer' bloomed. My camera isn't fast enough to catch his wings.
Agastache Acapulco - a bee and hummingbird "magnet" as they say in all the catalogs. It happens to be true in this case.
This is a Sally Holmes rose I planted last year to showcase our roman brick chimney. I had one at our last house and it was an amazing performer. This one appears to be taking after her sister in just one year.
A new climber I put in less than four weeks ago and it's just busting out: Darwin's Enigma will help to cover our yards of chain link fencing. I always like a white rose, and this one's blossoms are simple and small - just perfect.
An unknown but completely unself-conscious rose that blooms all summer on my parking strip.
A couple of blooms from our Northwest native area. A digitalis, and above, a snowberry, with minute pink blossoms that has been covered with so many bees I thought we might have a swarm somewhere close.
Finally, a couple of vegetable flowers. I would grow eggplant just for its foliage and flowers, let alone the tasty resulting veggies. This is Ichiban and it's a gorgeous purple.
And what vegetable flower can rival a tomato? I guess it looks so good to me because I'm dreaming of eating the late summer harvest from this Brandywine.
Happy Bloom Day all!
