A floral feast for the eyes

Here are a few photos of my favorite flowers in my garden this year.

Below are two photos of my Heirloom Hollyhock known as Nigra Hollyhock made famous by Thomas Jefferson who cultivated them. As you can see, the deep purple flowers are almost black in color.

I was not able to catch the spectacular detail of the spikes of this astilbe plant.

My pretty pink impatiens.

My stunning salmon hibiscus.
