Prowling petunias

A brash wave petunia leaves its terra cotta home to stalk arrogantly on our sweet yellow coreopsis. The calm summer has been great for flowers.

Below, more excitment as the gentle lilies are just starting, with many to come. This brave yellow pioneer, backed by blue Russian sage, reaches for sunshine, surrounded by dozens of younger siblings that we hope will be in full bloom when our late July company comes for backyard visits.
