This week the garden is popping with color, especially after a nice rainfall yesterday. The Monarda is blooming like crazy in shades of pink, purple & red and the bees are so loving it. Echinacea ‘Sundown’ is my favorite of the new cultivars. It has withstood drought, wet winters etc… Shasta Daisies always remind me of my Grandma’s Garden, since it was always one of her most loved perennials. A native perennial that is a true star has to be this Skullcap Hyssop, it’s a prolific self-sower that is easily removed if necessary. But the star this week has to be my Achillea, the pink and yellow combo was a happy accident. To see more Bloomin Tuseday posts or to join in on the fun this week please visit our host Ms Greenthumb.
