The bleeding heart is finishing up just in time for the poppies and fuchsia geranium to burst open.
The columbines in their pale pink and dark burgundy are mingled through the rest of the blooms keeping the bees happy with pollen. I always think they are the most likely to become a fairy hat the way they curl out at the edges.
I like to plant a few annuals each year to give the garden a little change and one of my favorite color combinations this year is the pansy I put in next to the variegated coral bells. Perfect!
