Summer Perennials

Can't complain about the summer weather this year, it has been lovely compared to the past couple summers. Cool overcast mornings quickly turn into sunny days with temperatures in the high 70's. The garden is looking like summer too, with wispy, tall perennials that start blooming in the spring and will go all season long. The gaura and hardy geranium (Rozanne) in this bed have taken over and are waist-high and wonderful! What started as a few one gallon plants have turned into a full flower bed spilling over the boxwoods intended to keep them contained. I am making note of what needs to be added next fall in the back to provide some depth to this bed, but right now I'm just sitting back and enjoying the summer display!
