My variegated hosta (I forget the variety name, would have to go look for the tag) is flowering-
and it's one I might cut to bring in the house
Monarda is blooming!
The newer one, still shorter, has slightly different flowers and darker leaves
From the other side of the back garden, monarda is a wall of foliage-
through which you can just see the dark pink of the shorter one
but for some reason the white daisies aren't doing so well
last pic of the day- a faded nasturtium. I keep pinching off dead flowers and washed-out leaves (looks like leaf miner bug is at them) to keep the plants tidy and encourage more flowers. I miss often enough that a few have set seed, which I leave to mature so I can save for next year.
