I also like the white daisies in front of the dark red of the maple.
Behind the echinacea is yarrow "Cerise Queen." It spreads fairly vigorously but it pulls out really easily. It comes in this bright pink...
...this very pale pink, almost white...
...and this amazing deep ruby red. There are only two little plants that bloom in this color but I'm hoping to let this one spread so I can move it to a few other places in the garden.
This is one of my day lilies. It's a melon color--I can't remember the name--and the flowers are HUGE.
And check out the tomato plant on my porch!
You'll probably not hear too much from me until the house is being stripped so enjoy the summer weather and have a safe and happy July 4th.
