The Big Piney Woods Cats started something called Flower Friday so we thought that we would indulge Mom and show some of her garden flowers. These are some photos she took a couple of days ago early in the morning before she went to work. It had rained the night before.
This is beebalm (Monarda didyma) with Shasta daisy. Beebalm is native to the area and is very attractive to hummingbirds. It is in the mint family and that sometimes means trouble, but Mom doesn't find it nearly as aggressive as the purple-pink wild bergamot (M. fistulosa) that she also has.
Mom likes vines a lot and the clematis by the deck is still blooming fairly well. It started blooming in April.
The daylily (Hemerocallis) Stella d'Oro shone brightly in the early morning light.
Happy Flower Friday!
