A few things blooming in the yard today.

Anise hyssop "Golden Jubilee"

Rudbeckia "Cherry Brandy"

A daylily from one of my customers. She brought it to me last year in exchange for a hardy hibiscus.

White Swan and Icicles.

Echinacea and Shastas.

Castor beans near the swing. These plants provide a quick, temporary summer screen. They grow to 10' or taller. Frost kills these plants in my zone. They outgrow the poke weed.

It's 72 degrees and hazy. The high today should reach the upper 80s. Chance of afternoon rain, 30%.

Most of those plants look like they are ripe for a butterfly convention. Looks like you will have lots of visitors real soon.

I still can't get over that "cherry brandy". I don't really care for rudbeckias because of the mustard yellow usually involved. But that baby is a stunner.

I didn't think I would be impressed with the 'new' echinaceas but that Cherry Brandy is a stunner. I love the color.
