Some May Flowers

A few things are hanging in there- no more foxgloves, the daisies, most roses, and irises are just about finished. But my Pinkie rose is doing well- I got it last year:

And the larkspur are still blooming, along with Beverly Sills iris and a rebloom from Frequent Flyer iris:

The rose looks amazing, and I really like the pix with the white larkspurs!

Very nice Renee.
In the first pic in the lower left, what are the very light pale blue bell like flowers?

Thanks

I love these 2 photos of your garden. The carpet of daisies, the tall stately larkspur and the elegant iris - wowzer!

Beautiful as always! I think I need some larkspurs. Did you plant those from seed in the fall?

Hoovb, yes. The larkspur were started from seed in the ground. They are over six feet tall- I am just smitten with them. They have lasted for a very long time because of our cool weather. They are called Imperial White.
