I've neglected the flowers a bit this year because I was preoccupied with the new vegetable garden. There's a little patch that I let grow wild in the backyard - even let the weeds enjoy themselves there. I've been trying to plant bee and butterfly friendly plants and natives in that sunny spot, but I still have some work to do there.
First, here are a few shots from the school garden:
I think this sunflower is called "Strawberry Blonde."
The chinese lanterns are already producing big orange glowing globs.
