    Gorgeous. I love the ‘Husker Red’ with the white and blue touches around it. And the daylily glows like hot metal.

    Lots of beautiful color, Susie. I look forward to dahlia season, although my plants are trailing yours, My one Buddleja appears to be hunkering down with not a bloom in sight.

      My dahlias are very slow too Kris and so are the zinnias, even though it’s been plenty hot. Hope the buddleja wakes up to support your butterflies.

      You identified my color scheme, Judy! Mixed box of crayons. I loved the rare times when we had a 64-count box, the colors and their names fascinated me.
