June is busting out all over

Boy, that was an old song, but it is true.  My flowers are really putting on a show & I thought I would share some pictures.

I haven't had gladiolas in years, but I bought a mixed bag this year.  They are just starting to bloom and I love this color combo.

Cleome, AKA spider flower

Dwarf dahlia  from seed.  It's about 2 feet tall, so not so dwarf, huh?

Another dahlia

Love Lies Bleeding (amaranthus).  This is one of my all time faves.  The only drawback is that bugs love the leaves and they look like lace.

One of my garden totems I bought at Homestead Apple Festival last year.
