Here are a few things I saw last year
during a Second Look.
|Sedum--Autumn Joy |
This year, they are about a week behind in blooming. They have just started.

The sage is in it's second set of growth for the season and it's still a favorite with the bees.
The ever-faithful marigold is doing well. All of this years plants came from these plants from last year.
|Queen Anne's Lace|
I haven't seen any of this blooming recently.
|The name of this plant escapes me at the moment. It comes back every year like a weed. Sometimes I let it grow and sometimes I don't. This year I left it alone and it's making a nice show in one of my beds.|
|Skipper Butterfly on purple sage (view from below)|
The little butterflies are still around. I spent Sunday with my buddy, Sarah, and we spent most our time watching butterflies and bees on flowers at the church.
I don't have many of these this year and they have the most blooms on them now of all season. They always brighten up wherever they are.
This is an annual that I didn't grow this year. I planted zinnias instead.
I have a different kind of begonia this year. They are doing quite well especially since I got them on clearance. You never know when you get plants like that.
