Mexican oregano (Lippia graveolens)
Salvia farinacea 'Henry Duelberg'

I noticed this colorful combo as I was buzzing around the garden. Wish I could take credit for it but have to admit it wasn't my plan. I do love the way the blue of the Salvia and the lavender of the Lippia complement each other.

Cosmos sulphureus

Several years ago I planted Cosmos seeds from 'Wildseed Farms' a seed supplier in Fredericksburg Texas. They return for me in abundance each year. This year they are blooming alongside 'Verbena on a Stick' (Verbena bonariensis) which grows about the same height. Orange with purple is my favorite garden twosome!
