Wordless Wednesday

Highlights from my garden this week.

 Coreopsis Red Shift

A gorgeous, large dragonfly, I haven't identified it yet 

Echinacea purpura 

Allium tubersum (garlic chives) 

Hydrangea, purchased as Lady in Red, but I'm not confident in the label 

Hydrangea lostustagus 
Lots of people up here didn't get good blooms on their hydrangeas this year. It's not a problem for me.

Santolina chamaecyparissus (Lavender cotton) 
Growing in the hellstrip and threatening to eat the sidewalk 

Liatris spicata Kobold 

Thalictrum (meadow rue) 
This plant is taller than our deck - probably 8 - 10 foot tall 

Monarda fromneighborii 

Buddleia nanho purple with Eastern Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio glaucus)
