Three from me, today.

If you look closely beside the large pink Cosmos, you will see a hydrangea bush to the left with a 1 inch Princess Diana clematis (very pink) to get an idea of the size of the Cosmos.

The stacked up Bee Balm was one of many that I got last year.

and, Blueberries for the veggie/fruit heads!

Smitty...nice balloon flower there. How old is this plant? (I'm trying to determine how long it will take for mine to get that big...assuming it survives the harsh winter we've had).

Lindamct...I hate to admit it but I've never collected or planted seeds. I really need to start though since buying everything in pots is so expensive. Also, the flower is more pink irl than the pic shows, however it's not as pink as the tag indicates.

Lizcordysmum...I've never seen a bee balm like that one...very nice!

The soup is extra tasty this year as I am starting from scratch on our new patch and am looking for inspiration! That Batik Iris looks particularly delicious Orchidguy. A wonderous bevy of B's everyone!

My flowers tend to have visitors...but here's a buddleia/butterfly bush, butterfly and hummer. All are a "must have" for my gardens!

Ho ho, Bluebird! Wonderful picture...are you trying to save time capturing critters all in one?

I love Buddelia.

I would like to know if the picture back on page 1 is a Bluebird Clematis, because I have two and they have very slender flowers, downward hanging. The picture here is gorgeous.

also really love the blue of the Campanula...VERY striking.

(mind, I love everything else too! Mmmm-mmh! The Soup is Delicious!)
