A neighbor's garden (in the mountains) is in full bloom. It's a bit eclectic, and was a bit jarring in its colors early in the season, but now, it's quite delightful. (Do click on the photo for a larger view).
They planted their front garden this spring, but have kept adding along the way. (Their much younger neighbors told us that it makes them tired to watch - but hopefully, it'll be an inspiration).
Now, in mid to late summer, it looks lovely. And this is a (very) part-time garden, as the gardeners live elsewhere for much of the time.
It reflects the beauty of old standards (the zinnias and Shasta daisies) as well as perennial sunflowers, shrub roses, and others.
