Friday PhotoEssay

You would think that since tomorrow is Tomato Day, I would devote this post to all things tomato. Not so! In fact, some of our Prairie Star Annual flowers are looking so beautiful that I have to show them off.

The white Angelonia really sets off the bright pink Vinca.

This time there is Purple Angelonia being highlighted by white Gomphrena. Angelonia is one of the newer annuals on the market (like in the last 10 years that I remember), but it is one of my favorites!

This ‘Senorita Rosalita’ Cleome doesn’t look as good now as it did a couple weeks ago, but when it is in full bloom, it is really pretty.

How many caterpillars can you find on this single fennel plant? I’ll give you a hint, it’s more than 10!

All right, fine. There’s your obligatory tomato picture. Happy now? Good, we’ll see you at Tomato Day tomorrow!

Have a great weekend!
