My front boulevard garden is blooming happily right now. There are daylily, sunflower, cosmo, dahlia and morning glory blooms in abundance. It’s just lovely.
I love these huge pink cactus dahlia blooms. There’s only two or three flowers so far since the three dahlia plants have only just started blooming, but they’ll continue to grow taller and develop more blooms throughout the summer and well into the fall.
If I’m lucky a plant or two might even survive the winter. If I’m smart this fall I could simply dig up the roots and store them in a cool area of the basement and replant them in the spring. I always seem to forget to do this though!
I suppose the color of the daylilies doesn’t really go with the pink Dahlias, but when you see the whole boulevard garden all the colors blend in well.
I think the bright yellow sunflowers help tie the two contrasting colors together.
How is your garden doing this summer? Are some of your favorite plants blooming right now?
