This is a dahlia I planted a little past the date on the package, as I had lost it for awhile. This, the first bloom, just opened yesterday. I am quite pleased with it.

I got this iris last summer on the 75% off table at a local garden center. I think it was a German iris. I need to learn more about them. I don't know if this is blooming when it's supposed to, long after the other irises are finished, or if it was delayed for some reason. It sure is pretty! It just opened this morning, and I dashed right out to take photos.
This zebrina mallow is from the seeds self planted from the one plant I got from a friend last year. It's blooming shorter than last year.
The butterfly bush is huge this year! It was teasing with closed buds for awhile, but they are now opening.
This is the compost pile in my garden across the street. I don't know how this blue morning glory got started here, but I've seen a few of the light blue ones here and there, too.
The bush cucumbers are full of blooms.
This is eenie allegro, one of the daylilies I purchased yesterday for half off. I plan to put them in the expanded area by the curb that we will have after the curb work is finished. I got some other plants for the area, also.
I've shown one of these that I think came from the tie die morning glories. I thought these were pretty enough for another look.
The other morning glories are up to the top of the light Larry's dad installed when he lived here.
The hibiscuses behind the garage are loaded, as usual.
I'm tickled the larkspur is still growing with the four o' clocks at the entrance to the veggie garden.
These are the blooms our daughter, who is a floral designer, made and had sent to us yesterday for our 37th wedding anniversary.
