Thank you, that was slow loading with all the pictures. Yesterday I noticed the hummers were going after my Larkspurs. They're an annual that Ii planted for the first time this summer. Vey slow growers but they finally bloomed, I never did transplant them from the tomato tub. Marigold with lettuce. Double impatiens, I hope this will winter over in Fl.

I could use some help on identifying Ajuga. I have three that I know of: Bronze Beauty, Chocolate Chip (no picture) and Burgundy Glow. All of a sudden I have this one that I can't identify. Any suggestions? The middle picture is the one in question. Thanks. It flowered a dark cobalt blue.

Pixie, I plant angelonia every spring....this year I have it in purple, white, & bicolor lavender.....

Thanks for the hints on Carpet Bugle. I've checked them all. There is no variegation of foliage so I have eliminated most that have two or more colors. Still searching. Maybe one of the others is reverting back to an original parent of it's background? It's very healthy and a nice contrast to the others. The flowers were really vibrant. I'm sorry my pictures weren't good and I discarded them. Better luck next time.

I was thinking maybe they cross pollinated or something

You might be right. I keep remembering Currier McEwen's first yellow Siberian Butter and Sugar came from two blue parents. Who'd a thought?

Nice Jen, love that daylily!

Thomaston, CT

All the blooms look great! My echies were "dusty" looking this year....so were my friend's....must be a fungus....the lilies I planted in June are now blooming! I was hoping to have some to enter in the fair on Thursday, but don't know if they'll hold...purple salvia the hummers love, dwarf canna.....

is it like a white thick dust on the echis? I have that on some of them

Thomaston, CT

No, the whole color is very subdued....more like a dusty rose instead of a bright pink.....and many petals are eaten or misshapen......

Denville, NJ(Zone 6b)

ooohhh just a few hummer shots

I agree about the beginning of the end Allison:
No Hummers,Wrens,Robins or small song birds.
Chickadees and nuthatches are in the garden.I love the nuthatch song.Makes me think of woods in winter.
