At the front you'll be greeted with pots of coleus and Potato vine that have no idea what boundaries are.
Phlox and purple fountain grass in the evening light. Butterflies are supposed to like these but I've never seen one around them.
The basil volunteers every year.
A yellow trumpet vine. Occasionally I will see some hummingbirds partake here.
Some new zinnias. Usually mine reseed, but thought it was time for a fresh planting.
I've seen this guy twice now. Can't imagine where he came from but I think he is the culprit behind my poppies being eaten this spring. Here I've caught him out getting a bath from the sprinkler.
And there are still a lot of sunflowers blooming to grace my table. The purple flower is a 'tall' verbena I planted this year. It's very airy. I'm hoping it will attract some butterflies. We have a nursery that will stock rather different plants and I am grateful.
What's growing at your place this week? Do tell...
