Here's my new bed that had been started the first week of June:
I think the delphinium was Butterfly Blue. It bloomed for quite awhile, then died. My others did that, too. I keep forgetting to check whether that's common. My annual larkspurs do. The phlox is Orange Perfection, but it never did look orange to me. I deadheaded it, and it rebloomed. I placed pots around on bare spots until they filled in.
Here's my Vancouver Delphinium when it was more dignified, and not sprawling all over the place. Oh, here's another plant that grew a lot even while blooming.
I always take pics from this view when I photograph the new bed, as well as the one above, from the front. I wonder what I'll call it next year, as it won't be new anymore! The sunflowers are not tall yet in this photo.
These last two are from the first week of October. A couple of the sunflowers had already been taken down by the squirrels, and the others by me, after they took all the seed heads. I haven't decided whether I'm growing sunflowers next year.
