Maximilian Sunflower Helianthus maximiliani

I just got this vase for next to nothing.  My Maximilian Sunflowers are in full bloom at the moment so I thought I'd put the vase to use.  Not a bad combo!

Yesterday I made a trek out to the Tyler Rose Garden with the Rainbow Garden Club of North Texas.  Not only do they have 38,000 rose bushes, but they also have quite a nice display of annuals and perennials.  It was a nice day that inspired me to get back to work in my garden. This first rose is Artistry, the second is Distant Drums, Eglantyne is next, and lastly Gertrude Jekyll.
