I'm not really crazy about Pansies, but I received some as a gift this year and they remind me why I should have them every year. One pot is getting really leggy, so I think they are pretty much fed up with the heat.
Their sweet little faces ~
The Rudbeckia are showing their faces throughout the yard ~
The is a new Coneflower. Pink Double Delight. The centers are supposed to look like a double bloom, instead of having the orange in the center . . . the jury's still out on this one. Maybe when the bloom gets larger - I don't know ~
The Daylilies are starting to bloom, but I think the weather has had an effect on everything. While there has been more than enough rain, we need more sun. The edge of my large flower bed was lined with Threadleaf Coreopsis and hardly any of it has come up. I don't know if that is due to the strange weather we've had - or the rabbits. The rain does make for easy weed pulling though.
