As promised I have photos of my summer flowers. This patch is right outside of our front porch and is seen from the front door all of the time. I love the mix of yellow, purple and orange flowers. I think my favorite are the Blazing Stars. They grow over 3 feet tall and bloom with delicate purple flowers. The bumble bees love them too and I have always been fascinated watching them fly around and collecting pollen. I also have Shasta Daisies, Purple Cone-flowers, Moonbeam Coreopsis and other butterfly attracting plants.
I started planting these flowers 5 years ago when we moved in. I buy only gallon plants so it has taken some time for them to fill in. Other plants have been divided from my Mom’s perennial garden. I only plant perennials because I want plants that come back year after year. The plan for next year is to get some lower flowering plants to put up in the front of the garden, closer to the sidewalk to fill it all in.
