I cut back my salvia after it bloomed and got a repeat performance!

Russian Sage with my constant companion, the grasshopper (or cricket? I don’t know. This is why I am getting a guide book from the library).

Zinnia! I was initially disappointed in my zinnias because all of the smaller flowers blossomed first. But now that these big bright flowers have bloomed I know I will definitely grow zinnias again next year.

This is actually a dahlia, not a zinnia. I grew it from seed and I am pretty excited about how successful growing dahlias from seeds was. Also a bug. Have I ever mentioned that there are a lot of bugs at my house?
