Lovely plants and pictures. You have so much. The 'unknown' is Love in a Mist, aka nigella damascens. Self seeds prolifically and has excellent seed heads. Disappears in summer here but returns every year-just like a perennial. Have a super day in Texas. I am in Tennessee.

Hello,your garden looks like summer.
The meadow has such pretty flowers. Does it have bloom for a long time?
I am working on a prairie like version and hoping the annual coreopsis self seeded abundantly as they were so pretty last year.So far I don't see them but it is still very cool.
Don't you love finding new garden blogs through the GBBD?

How nice to see a new face on my blog - thanks for visiting. Glad you enjoyed it.

Someone beat me to the "Love in the Mist" answer. These are a childhood favourite of mine - my granny grew them, along with hollyhocks.

I'm envious of your astilbe. I put four lots in in March and am still waiting for action! Do I have to wait another year? Maybe it's too hot for them here.

Enjoyed visiting you.

Great batch of flowers and photos! Your greggii salvias are wonderful, one of our favorites too. Our corn poppies that were a mixture turned out to be all white and creamy yellow, no brighter colors. How wonderful to have a meadow, must be so full of butterflies. BTW, big Johnny Depp fan here also. ;->

The meadow is gorgeous - I aspire to have something like that in the next few years. I am making note of some of what you show, as your climate is similar to mine. Love it!

Jane Marie said...

Your garden looks like my area in July. Lovely flowers.

I just discovered your blog and just wanted to say how beautiful your pictures were! I am a begginner and have been doing quite well with my purple verbena and pink begonias, someday I hope to have as many flowers as you!
