Fleurs of August.

Wonderful bloom. Easy to see how some people can get obsessed with them.

I love zinnias. And the cleome is still going strong.

This one appeared out of nowhere a few years ago and has continued to seed itself all over the flowerbeds and lots in the grass. They are pretty though, especially as most of the other flowers are fading.

The obviously new lilly...

This lilly is less than 6 inches tall. While the established ones bloomed in June, it was planted then (one of the bulbs from the half-off bin). It makes me laugh - as the established plants were 2 feet tall. :)

Weed or Flower?

I emptied out many old seed packets this spring - so I don't know if this is a weed or a flower. Any ideas? If those are all seed heads - I need to pull it quick.

Update: After some searching I think it might be pigsweed. Which I have never seen in my garden before. I don't think I'm going to be buying the same mushroom compost ever again.
