Mid summer has all kinds of flowers blooming. Some that are over my head and I can look up into the flower. Lilium superbum, Turk's Cap Lily
Many are at knee to waist level. These can easily be seen just by looking around.
All the different kinds of Rudbeckia are having a very good display this year.
I'm not sure this would be my favorite, but it is bold.
Underneath it all, hugging the ground is another whole world of blooms like this Prunella vulgaris, Heal All.
Thyme that has long since escaped cultivation to join the inhabitants of the meadow end of the vegetable garden is also in full bloom.
A couple of the sunflowers for fun in the roadside vegetable garden are well above my head.
The new Echinops bannaticus is showing its true, tiny blue flowers on a prickly head. I hope it seeds as readily as the Bull Thistle, Cirsium vulgare. The Echinops is significantly less vicious.
This blue will go very well with the Chicory's blue.
