Happy Tuesday… two more days until short vacation time!!
I want you guys to be sure I don’t bring any work with me. I’m serious. Not even a small design. =-)
Lychnis arkwrightii ‘Orange gnome’ ~ Ragged robin or champion
I. Must. Have. This! The flowers are about an inch big (3 cm). Again, as with the last lychnis I shot, I would have to alter this image to express the brightness of these blooms.
Penstemon ‘Dark Towers’ ~ Beard-tounge
Heliopsis ‘Summer nights’ ~ False sunflower or oxeye
Spigelia marilandica ~ Indian pink
A native here. Likes dry shade.
Umm.. I can’t seem to remember this one… 😉
Eryngium ‘Big blue’ ~ Sea Holly
What’s not to like about this ‘punk-rock’ flower ?!?
Heuchera ‘Midnight Rose’ ~ Coral bells. The pink flecks in the leaves enlarge and turn creamy pink towards the end of the season.
Hemerocallis fulva ~ Orange Day-lily, Tawny Daylily, Tiger Daylily, Fulvous Daylily, Ditch Lily, Railroad Daylily, Roadside Daylily, Outhouse Lily
A wild strawberry patch… So bitter, even the birds have left it alone!
Morus alba ~ Mulberries!!! Soooo close! These are pie-hole height. I could eat these with my eyes closed and hands behind my back. Not yet, tho. I must wait until they are dark purple. Then I must do my civic duty and rid our land of the invasive species… one berry at a time!
