I'm not sure of my identification of this plant, but it's the tallest flower in our garden. We have 3 huge patches of it, and they routinely reach 8 feet. The stems emerge in a patch about 2 feet across, but by the time it's full grown and the stems bend outward, it easily covers 8 feet horizontally too.
This is the flower. It might be a False Sunflower, or Heliopsis, or it could be a Coneflower or Rudbeckia. In any case, it's a big landmark at this time of the year at the back of our garden.
And here's the fence, yellow-flowered when viewed from behind.
That rusty bit of metal is a giant flower sculpture that disappears behind the leaves of a Clematis, and only emerges again in the winter.
The rooster is a sculpture that Mrs. F.G. picked up at a high school years ago.
I really do have to look up at these flowers, towering over my head. But they add a lot of colour to our garden at this time of year, and for several weeks to come.
