There are a lot of other flowers in bloom in the garden at the moment too, but many more still to come. We're just at a point where the colour scheme will shift from whites, pinks and blues to bright yellow.
We don't grow roses, but we do have one pasture rose bush that is covered in flowers right now.
We've had a lot of iris, especially these beautiful royal blue ones, along with white, deep purple and yellow, but they're just about over now.
The Vervain isn't a spectacular flower itself, but it's a magnet for butterflies and it adds a wonderful fragrance when you're nearby. It self-seeds readily, so our original patch is now scattered plants through much of the garden.
The first of many Brown-eyed Susan variations is in bloom. In a week or two the garden will have shifted from white, pinks and blues to dominantly yellow with large patches of these or similar bright yellow flowers.
And the very first daylily to bloom, just a Stella Doro, but the forerunner of many bright blooms for weeks to come - just look at the buds on this other daylily ready and waiting!
