Summer Garden Sizzle In Red

Echinacea In Shadow

My Summer Garden is in full swing, and it just sizzles in red, orange and purple.  I am very happy with the iris beds that I put in.  It makes the garden so much more tidy.  We already made one big change this summer already.  A huge Rhodie that I had by my deck was completely covered by teeny tiny lace bugs.  We started by renovating the Rhodie, but decided we really liked opening up the area, and took it out entirely.  We are turning that space into an extension of the deck.  No deck yet, but we just put in some wood chips and moved some pots there.  We Love it.

My garden has all kinds of flowers blooming and the veggies are producing.

Pink And Red Daylily

This vivid Pink and Red Daylily has a prime spot in our Volcano Strip.

Echinacea Hot Lava Opening

Also in the Volcano Strip, this Hot Lava Echinacea is beginning to open.  The green center is just glowing.

Bees On Drumstick Allium

I have many bees in my garden.  Two of them have found the Drumstick Allium in my back yard.

Magenta Daylily

This Daylily is bright Magenta, almost Purple.

Crocosmia Lucifer

But the Reddest flower of all in my garden right now is my Crocosmia Lucifer.  We got it staked up just in time for it to bloom, because dozens of Hummingbirds love to come for the nectar.  And we thwart our kitties however we can. to give the Hummers protection.

There are more Reds in my garden right now, but these were the best of them.
