Happy floral Friday and welcome to "this week in my Maryland Garden." I especially love my garden at this time of year. God has blessed me with so many flowers it's hard to choose just five for this weekly feature.  I hope you enjoy my selections. The cheery black-eyed Susans are at their peak (and they're also the Maryland state flower).

 This orange zinnia flower is over four inches in diameter.

The tiny but gorgeously fluffy teddy bear sunflower blooms are adorable.

The day lilies are still going strong. We have early, mid and late season bloomers so it keeps the day lily area full of flowers for a nice part of the summer.

I love the raindrops on this red vinca. It seems to be doing fine in its hanging basket but if it starts to suffer and we have a cool day I'll probably plant it in the ground.

Thank you for joining me on this week's photo tour of my Maryland garden! May God bless, keep and encourage you!
