The Endless Summer hydrangea looked so big a few weeks ago in the mixed border along the street, but now it's almost buried by the cleome, and there there are all the Chinese lanterns coming up through the hydrangea blooms.
Hydrangea "Lanarth's White" still showing a lot of blue near the front door.
Parts of the mixed border are getting ready for July 4th, it seems. Monarda, Ruellia, Ageratum, and Ammi majus.
The garden snobs will probably hate the garish color combinations, but I really like how happy this area looks. The Endless Summer, cleome, rose campion, and calendula.
Another shot of the mixed border from the front door. Can you tell that I'm a big fan of achillea?
