The white Phlox down there was just starting to bloom.
I don't know the name of this one, but it's shorter than 'David.'
I finally ripped out the dang artichoke that hadn't done anything in two years.
I replaced it with a dahlia that wasn't doing anything in another part of the yard.
The 'Canary' Crocosmia was just starting to show color, as well.
I don't know if it had the wrong tag when I bought it, or if orange is the new yellow.
I guess compared to this really orange one, if you squint just right, it could be considered yellow.
I got a darker pink on one of the Gladiolas.
The red Lobelia is blooming.
I just put this in down there this year and it seems pretty happy.
I thought it might be too hot and dry, but it gets some shade from the Rose of Sharon tree, so I guess it's good to go.
The 'Autumn Joy' Sedum is starting to show color, and another one of the Four 'O Clocks I started from seed is blooming.
On the other side of the sidewalk, the Plumbago is blooming (early!) and the Vinca I stuck in earlier this summer is starting to take off.
The rest are pulled back shots of that side.
I added several more rocks, in an attempt to help with the dirt running straight off onto the sidewalk when I water.
