Summer graces

Some of my favorite summer flowers grace the front of my house right now: scarlet bee balm (monarda); and a white balloon flower. I drive up, always participating in their glory. The bee balm blooms fairly long too, approximately 2-3 weeks.

A summer bouquet for my table includes:

bee balm
loose strife
antique roses
corn flower
stoke's aster
tea rose

The back view of the arrangement; here you can see the Stoke's astor (blue); the daisy and a tea rose.

Lovely, lovely pics. My hubby mentioned making our backyard into a flower garden. I am trying not to be pushy!

Yes, why mow when you can have blooms instead? I hope it happens, and that you'll post some pics!
