You are getting a lot of ruffles up there in NH. I am in love with Vanilla Gorilla,
also Boundless Beauty, Swamp Dust, Flirting with Disaster, and the Fruite de
Loops. But the Vanilla Gorilla is my absolute favorite, especially after seeing
it in a clump. Simply gorgeous clump.

Good morning to all from sunny New Hampshire where it's going to be hot and very humid today. I'm happy to see some other August blooming flowers but agree that Maverick is probably the best find Thumbs up He looks like a very happy boy!

Fred, I love your side photo of ALDERSGATE, I'm not so big on spiders but I do love those curls Thumbs up

Below are some pics of what was blooming in the garden yesterday.........deadheading is getting way too easy.

I agree with everyone that Maverick is a beauty and a very lucky dog. Karin, I really like Regency Heights - the soft colors and the form. Is it a dip or tet?

I have a very few blooming this morning.

Orange Blossom Trail with some cosmos and zinnias.

Blue Eclipse - a bonus from Pete Harry this spring. It is a little washed out, but this one has continued to bloom since mid May.
Thumb of 2012-08-03/farmerbell/6a2cb2



This is one of my favorite reseeding annuals - nicotiana sylvestris. I really enjoy white in the garden plus I like the cascading blooms.

Hi Ann,
REGENCY HEIGHTS is a diploid. I love the soft coloring also and this plant has great substance. It's by Hazel Dougherty who did some other great diploids like AUTUMN WOOD, INDIAN RIPPLE and STOLEN TREASURE Thumb of 2012-08-03/nh4me/47a48c

I love your ORANGE BLOSSOM TRAIL and will have to think about adding that one to my garden sometime if it's hardy up here in NH. Great color combo you have there Thumbs up

Nice photos everyone. There were only a couple blooming here today, it's TOO HOT!!

JWWC, your photo of New Paradigm is incorrect, maybe you just got the wrong name on it.
