Summer Flowers



I moved to the country 6 years ago from a concrete jungle and am finally starting to get more comfortable with growing things. Kind of weird, because I always grew things in the city, but somehow up here, it is a bit, well, overwhelming. Everything grows everywhere! Not to mention my husband likes weeds. He is a botanist and just wants to see what happens to nature unimpeded. We've reached a bit of a happy medium and here are a few blossoms from this week's floral explosion.

Wildflowers are the prettiest bouquets! I love how everything grows and takes over, even in cracks of cement!

The only thing that would make the bee balm photo better would be the hummers that spend so much time there in your yard, enjoying them.
