Tom loves to harass me about my flowers ... "are they edible???" Then I remind him ... the coneflowers create echinicea. I have lemon balm, tandy, herbs ... lavender ... sweet Annie ... so, ummmm.... yes!
I love the colors of my coneflowers, especially this one. Apparently, the bees (yea! bees!) like it, too.
My sole hollyhock plant. I planted 2, three or four years ago. One bloomed beautifully, then disappeared, never to return. But, one is better than none ...
My little snapdragons .. planted 2 years ago and this year, have sprouted sporadically (say that fast 5 times!) around the house. They are so cute!
Mmmmm ... daylilies! These flowers sprout all over Ohio & they certainly seem to love our dirt (or, the rocks that pass for dirt). I've these oranges, yellows & deep burnt oranges.
I've planted new (to me) ones this year that I hope thrive well. My parents' best friends are both dying from cancer & H dug up hostas & daylilies from their yard for me. I am truly blessed to have something that will bloom & grow in my garden, in memory of them.
