Passionate Purple & Pink

1 Comment

Both of these wildflowers found my garden.
They are seasonal and have multiplied.
Sometimes you just get lucky!

Here are eggplant and potato flowers
from the vegetable garden.

Lupine and Foxglove reseed freely.
I never know where they will appear year-to-year.
They are always welcome additions.

Years ago, I planted Garlic in my flower beds to fight bugs,
I think it will come up forever.
Agastache, or Giant Hyssop, is supposed to be deer resistant,
but I don’t trust those animals.  Some of the plants are fenced,
some are not, so far all are surviving.

Short and tall exemplars.
Bellflower is peeking out between Bergenia leaves.
Its own leaves are the serrated ones in the back of the photo.
These Hollyhock blossoms are ‘doubles’ with extra petals.
A neighbor gave me these plants a number of years ago,
and they are finally blooming.
