Pic only Thursday!
My super funky Pennisetum 'Moudry' or Black Fountain Grass....very cool but dang does it self sow!
My limey green zinnias...only one had come up from the seeds I planted this spring. I love this color!
My white marigolds - I'm not particularly a fan of marigolds. I think their traditional orange is really garish in most gardens. I'm seeing a trend of my liking of traditional flowers in nontraditional colors.
