The peak of summer

The gardens are going full steam this month with several new additions this summer, including this midnight Hollyhock.  As a kid, my neighbors always had this tall plan growing along the side of their house.  I loved the colors and height.  

This delicate flower is Vervain and the French use its leaves for tea.  

 The Yarrow and daisies are waiting for the Rudbeckia to bloom.  Soon, very soon.

Garden looks pretty good this summer.  It's always a work in progress but I'm happy with it so far this year!

Here's some more photos if you'd like to see more of how my gardens grow.
