Becky shasta daisies began making a show en masse this week. Their geometry and simple beauty make them stunning. Their extended blooming season and long, sturdy stems make them a stalwart flower in a cutting garden.

The liatris, or blazing star, has begun is slow, top-down spiky blooming.

The bloodflower’s blooms remind me of those of Dallas Red lantana.

I cut back the nepeta (catmint) and gave some to Grizzie. After thanking me, she enjoyed a good roll in it.
