Five Flowers for Your Summer Garden

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.
