This is the "corner " in Dragonfly Corner, at the crossroads of Main and Olive. My pink cone flowers which are doing a good job of reseeding themselves and filling in have given me several new starts. I have put them in other beds, adding yet more plants that take little care. And my standby Wave petunias. I love the way they cascade over the sides of the planter and never have to be dead headed or become spindly.
This is a climbing rose..the name long ago lost! It grows up and along our back deck, but also through it. As vigilant(not!) as I am in keeping it trained, it sends runners up through the seating. I don't have the heart to cut it back when it is blooming. And there is enough seating that we can share!
I love lilies of any kind, and have several daylilies and Asian types. But I swear this is one I don't remember planting. The first year it came up it was just a stalk with leaves--no flowers. The next year, I think there was one or maybe two. Now it is full and the flowers are enormous. Since I can't remember planting it, I have no idea of it's name.
It just showed up on year in with my Rudbeckia! I love the thought that Mother Nature decided I needed a focal point!
I do have a lovely Queen Elizabeth rose. She is ever faithful and gives me such great blooms. And she is such a delicate pink, but alas, I can't find her picture! So From all my "Pinks"
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
