"Gimmie More Flowers!"

Here’s the latest round of summer blooms
Tall Phlox ~ can’t remember the name right now… of course!

Penstemon ‘Lilac Frost’ ~ Did you know there was an American Penstemon Society? I didn’t.  Here’s a link to that too ~> http://www.apsdev.org/

lots of blooms this year~ they really love this rainy weather!

Yellow Sunset climbing rose is still going

The hosta I can’t remember the name of is now blooming

such clear white flowers on short stalks~ I wish I could remember how big it’s supposed to get!

As much as they are over done, you still can’t beat a sunny orange marigold!

My favorite Salvia- the annual ‘Victoria’

Okay, no blooms here and only a weed, but I’m still fond of this little guy~ though mistakenly called a clover by many, this is actually a yellow woodsorrel ( Oxalis stricta ).  It’s completely eatable~ One of my neighbors (now passed) told me he used to eat them as a kid to settle a sick stomach.  I just loved the exploding seedpods when I was a kid!  Here’s a link ~> http://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/weeds/plants/yl_sorrel.htm
