I realize that I’ve posted pictures of all of these things before. Guess what? They’re pretty again this year.

First row:

Butterfly weed, Echinacea*, star-gazer lily, and hibiscus

Second row:

Black-eyed Susan, Ordinary Spouse’s garden**, and two views of the Mother’s Day garden

* Google Chrome spell-checker has ‘echinoderm’, but not ‘Echinacea’.

** Much to OS’s chagrin, I have prominently featured the part of the garden that contains lettuce going to seed. I prefer to think of it as ‘seed lettuce’. It’s just preparing for next year.
