The first sunflower bloom.

It came from a pack labeled "Esther's Mix". I'm not sure who Esther is or if it's a commercial mix. You gotta love seed trading. The bee is having fun though.

The bee balm is a double.

Dame's Rocket.

Pink salvia from Carrie.

A new rudbeckia.

The daturas are just toying with me now. It's gotta happen tonight.

I'll have the chair ready to watch it open just after sunset.

Oh, those daturas are really something!

That's a pretty pink salvia. Do you know which one it is?

Stay cool this weekend. Will it really be 100?

I am really hoping my bee balm is a double. I know I bid on some when I was buying these on ebay. Yours is spectacular!

Cameron, daturas aren't supposed to be browsed by deer either. It's only 88 right now, but the humidity...good grief!

Heather, if yours isn't a double, let me know. I'll be saving seeds and will gladly send you some.

How exciting to see a sunflower. It'll be awhile here still.
Hope the daturas open soon!
