OK, so the heat and humidity are miserable. At least the flowers seem to like it.
My new garden in back is kind of sparse. But, that is to be expected. It will eventually fill in. In the meantime, it's something to look forward to.
The flowers around my back steps, on the other hand, are doing great
The hydrangeas are loving this moist heat. I have been watering them faithfully since they first leaved out, and they are rewarding me for my efforts now.
The first coneflower. Not quite in full bloom yet.
I can't decide if I like these petunias or not. They add some color to the garden, but, they're kind of blousy.

I don't know what the name of this one is. I think it's old, because it doesn't clump nicely, but spreads, like a road lily. Also, each flower is a little flawed. But, I have always thought it was beautiful.
Unknown, but one of my favorites.
Also unknown, but another favorite. I do seem to like the eyed ones.
Finally, I guess it's still close enough to the 4th to enjoy some fireworks. I don't know the real name of these, but I have always thought that they look like fireworks going off.
