I now have a great big stupid blister on the palm of my right hand. I should have dumped a bag or two of compost there first and planted in that, the ground was too much clay and roots.

Backyard phlox that perennialized from last year. I learned how to save its seed. Maybe no more four o'clocks next year, and more phlox.

Some cosmos. At least two varieties pictured.
By request, here's a shot of one of the wildflowers that have bloomed underneath Kim's roses. Not sure what this is, but we got the wildflower seed from Kim's parents - and still have a lot left over.
