Blooms in the Birdbath Garden
One of my favorite perennials 'Oranges and Lemons' Gaillardia is flowering nicely. It's a little crowded in its current location. I'm going to have to consider another birdbath garden expansion in the future.
Perennials Blooming in the Birdbath Garden: Salvia, Gaillardia, Echinacea purpurea, Echinacea paradoxa, Butterfly Bush, 'Walker's Low' Catmint, Achillea millifolium.

The rest of the photos are of individual plants that are blooming in various gardens.
The crape myrtle provides a privacy screen effect for the bathroom window. Crape myrtles grow fast and don't grow too large which makes them a good choice for planting this close to the house.
The coral honeysuckle (Lonicera sempervirens) is still pushing out blooms.
This coreopsis is a descendant of some 'Sunfire' coreopsis seed I collected. It's still retaining the red coloration on the petals.
'Crimson Pirate' Daylily
Can you say "ARRR!"
The garden beside the deck has more coreopsis blooming, this time it's a lance leaved variety. Pink achillea has now faded to near white.
Gaillardias are just one of the best aren't they? Prolific bloomers and all colors look great. This one came as a seed raised offspring from my 'Oranges and Lemons'. It would have been nice for it to breed true but I have to admit this red one is pretty cool!
Thanks for visiting!
