Today in the Garden...

There is so much going on in my garden right now! Come take a quick tour. Feel free to click on any picture for larger view. To start with, a Pink Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) continues to bloom. That's a reseeded Salvia coccinea beside it.

The Tomatillos have begun producing their fruit.

I just love the color in these Coleus!

The Calamint has dainty little flowers. The bees come to visit this one.

Isn't this a great combination! The orange rose and Artemisia 'Powis Castle' are so cool together.

A Cardinal Climber is making its way up the side of the deck.

Several weeks ago, I uprooted and divided this Geranium 'Rozanne' and now it is blooming again. There is a little creature in the flower.

Look at the variegated leaf of my ground orchid (Bletilla striata 'Albostriata'). I think it is so pretty!

These plants reseeded themselves here with each other. They have amazing design sense, don't they? Thank you for coming by to visit!

Have a beautiful day!

Wow - I love the white daisies and purplish black foliage. Nature has a way of outdoing us, doesn't it?

My favorite is the last picture. Sometimes nature does it best!

This time of year, it is hard to focus in the garden. So many distractions wherever you turn. Your reseeded plants in the last shot are indeed a nice combination. Thanks for stopping by my site on GBBD.

Is that perilla and chamomile in the last photo? Whatever it is, I absolutely love the combination. The orange rose with artemisia is gorgeous, too. You have all sorts of interesting plants in your garden.

I'm so glad you point out each beautiful detail ~ I might overlook some of them otherwise!

Melody, Meredehuit, Les, Daricia, and Anne - Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by and leaving comments! :) The last picture is my favorite one, too. I like saving the best for last! :) I think the white daisy-like flower is Anthemis cotula - mayweed. So far, I don't consider it a weed! :) And the dark purple is an heirloom purple ruffled basil that reseeds like CRAZY! If you need some, let me know! :) I don't consider it weedy, either. Yet.

That is such a great photo. I didn't see you on Amazon, have you published any garden photo books yet?

The purple basil reseeded all over my garden too ~ I'll be drying it for use in cooking and tea, but will definitely be letting some go to seed again! Beautiful and edible ~ such a great combination! :)
