|Is there anything more bright and cheerful than a yellow sunflower?|
|So far, almost all of the 'Flash Blend' sunflowers look alike|
|Only one of the 5 or 6 Coreopsis 'Big Bang Redshift' I planted years ago is left in the garden but that plant is blooming well this year|
|Clockwise from the left: Helianthus annuus 'Lemon Queen', noID Helianthus (from the 'Flash Blend' mix), Coreopsis 'Redshift', and Abelia 'Kaleidoscope'|
|The pink Eustoma grandiflorum (Lisianthus) have just about been forgotten this year but they're a nice match to the pink-edged yellow variety that recently flowered|
|The back view of this vase (an ornamental teapot) is dominated by Ozothamnus diosmilifolius|
There are still dahlias galore in the cutting garden but the white dinner-plate variety I had bloom last week was past its prime for use as vase material this week and 'Loverboy' and 'Terracotta' have already had their time at base. Hopefully, I'll have one or more new blooms to offer next week as 'Hakuyou', 'Punkin' Spice' and 'Fairway Spur' all currently have buds.
Visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to find more vases.
