sunflower days
Stephanie Lamperski

I have been growing sunflowers for years, and this year I believe my multi flower variety is the tallest ever…~13’ . Usually only the Russian Mammoth single flower claim to be 12-14’. I want to send you a couple pictures… Long live the mighty Sunflower!!!

Tithonia and ?

Tithonia is wonderful. My first try. The tall plants with small white flowers on the right, I can’t identify, but I know I got the seeds from Doug Oster.

Red Garnet Pentas

I’m really liking this Red Garnet Pentas, vinca and heliotrope beside my deck steps.

Dahlia beds are hitting their stride…

I love this time of year…. I wake up early so I can see what has happened in my 4 dahlia beds overnight. With 175 planted there is never a dull morning!


Hummingbirds love the zinnias and nasturtiums.
