I love all your blooms! I really enjoy seeing photos of indivdual flowers. I enjoyed the Brown Eyed Susans. They were my father's favorite and I have them everywhere. Thank you for sharing your garden.

I love the Scarlet Runner Bean! It's too hot here in central NC to grow them. Your Brown-Eyed Susans and Anemones are putting on a beautiful show.

I especially love the first shot of rudbeckia 'golden glow' a plant I keep meaning to get and always forget! Your gardens must be gorgeous with all these blooms in so many rooms. Stunning shot of the sunflower. I agree with Sweet Bay that your Anemone's and Brown Eyed Susans are a great show.

Mama used to grow Golden Glow, a good summer choice.

You have so much color in the garden at this time of year. Something I must strive harder to create. My Anemones are just beginning to open.

Those rudbeckia even look like dahlias!

Rudbeckia golden glow is the flower I've seen around and wondered what it was. I love it! When I bought my Herbstonne, I thought that's what it was going to be. I like it, too, but hope to find a golden glow.

I like your other blooms, too. All of your dahlias are awesome!
