Happy floral Friday and welcome to "this week in my Maryland garden!" The heat and humidity are back but the flowers still look happy. This week brought our first shasta daisy blooms of the year.

And also our first red coreopsis blooms. When we bought these plants they were pure red flowers. But as time goes by little bits of two of the plants produce orange and red bicolor flowers. I like them both but think it's interesting that they come from the same plant.

Our sweet peas have started blooming too. I waited too late to train them up a trellis so they're sprawling all over the place.

I love the French marigolds, possibly even more so because I started them from seed. It's exciting to see the first blooms in these easy to grow flowers.

The bees love the purple coneflowers (also known as echinacea). This flower is about the size of my palm so you can imagine how tiny the bee is.

It's fun to have so many flowers blooming in our Maryland garden.  Thank you for visiting! May God bless you!

Which is your favorite flower from today's post? What flower(s) remind you of summer?
