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!
