More Blooms Today

The first Foxglove (a 'volunteer' in this particular spot) is also in bloom today. It is surrounded by Lavender, which will soon bloom, and Monarda, which will take a little longer still. For one reason, I am assiduously pinching it, to keep it branching and relatively short; last year, I was not quite so diligent, and as a result the Monarda was prone to flopping over in a good rain. Upright they are prettier than half laying on the ground!
