Wonderful. Thanks for the walkabout through your gardens, Bon. The rudbeckias are showing off nicely, such pretty colours. And the four o’clocks are huge. Did you start it from seed this year? Mine are yellow and red, started from seed in the garden this year. They are just getting big enough to show over the other plants. Your love-lies-bleeding is wonderful. Mine got knocked over by the wind and the stocks broke but they are still blooming! They are such a statement in the garden.

Your flowers have been beautiful all summer long. Nice job creating gardens where the color lasts through the entire season. I am with jroot and really like your soft-yellow hollyhocks but I am very fond of your blue morning glories too.

I am still counting on my rudbeckias and the gaillardia to carry the color for another week… or two if I am lucky. That and the echinacea…
