A favorite of this hummingbird clearwing moth, the Vitex was an impulse purchase last year. I love the way it's filled out. Although, I'm a bit worried I may have placed it a little too close to the house. An amateur mistake that I still routinely make!
I have this lavender planted under some roses, and I love it when they bloom. Right now, the roses are going through a resting phase, but the lavender still makes this area a beauty to see.
Spiky salvias are always lovely to see in the garden. I have several different types, and are continually adding to my collection.

Another plant that is fairly new to me, Stokesia brings a smile to my face with its big, fat, beautiful blooms. It seems to make the butterflies smile, too!
Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers, whether they're pink, purple or blue. This year mine are a mix of colors. How fun!
My garden has the blues. It's a very happy place!
