Five Flowers for Your Summer Garden

July 13, 2012 at 10:37 am 2 comments









Daisies, the kind you see in fields and lanes











Gaillardia, bloom from June until first frost in October












Lance-leaf coreopsis, a small delicate flower, one of my favourites











Lily, resembling a Tiger Lily, but without the black spots on petals










Another lily, new to my garden


All of these flowers except the daisies are hardy plants that handle drought well. The daisies I keep anyway, despite their rather short blooming time, because I like them so much.


Consider the lilies, how they grow…even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these.  Luke 12:27

    These five flowers are enough in the presence of garden for garden beauty.
