We love flowers which bloom en masse….

Clusters of tiny, nectar rich blossoms draw in our beautiful pollinators to enjoy the feast,

and they also attract us with their beauty!

What intense, vibrant color summer flowers offer; especially when they open in giant, massed globes and spikes,

fluffy heads and intricate geometries!

It’s the buffet, not the tapas; exuberant abundance over parsimonious rectitude.

It is one of the absolute pleasures of high summer to find these floral follies opening daily,  filled with sweetness, scent, and the saturated color one dreams in February;

  1. It’s so wonderful to open your blog and fall into all this beauty! We have to keep planting the pretty flowers so the bees continue to come! As always, a delight! Thanks for sharing. Have a lovely weekend! Koko 🙂

    • Thank you, Koko ❤ Your beautiful comment has made my day. I'm so happy whenever you stop in for a visit in the garden. We keep planting, too; but we do as much as we can with shrubs and perennials which will come back year to year. Every season is better as those perennials continue to mature and leave fewer 'holes' which need fresh planting. Hope you have a lovely weekend, Koko ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. How beautiful everything looks. Flourishing is the word that comes to mind. Have a great weekend, WG! 🙂
