Self seeded sunflowers were planted the year my daughter married. She asked me to grow sunflowers for her. It was a magnificent season, the garden burst with lemon, yellow and maroon sunflowers from July through September. I let them grow and leave them for the birds now. Every summer I am delighted again and send photos to my daughter. A legacy of love.
Shasta Daisy was planted three years ago and is happy in the corner spot of the garden. I like the way the white and yellow petals balance each other .
Tricolor Salvia is a favorite of mine in bouquets. It is subtle but adds color and shape to the mix.
Mint fills the room with its aroma and gives the house a pleasant undertone.
Purple Clover, Meadow Daisy, and Black Eyed Susan all perennial flowers returning every summer to dance in the field with the wind.
