The Late June Garden- Blooms part 1

The garden is starting to reach it's prime.  I'm still amazed at the amount of growth since the end of May.
Above, one of my favorite colors from the 'Balcony Mixed' petunia's.  This has turned out to be a great mixture with lots of interesting colors.
Above, a clump of 'Sense of Wonder' daylilies.

Above, the main flower bed by the pool is starting to enter it's peak.
Above, the current star of the pool flower bed, 'Powwow Wildberry' echinacea. 
Above, one of the two cosmos pots.
Above, on of the four matching pool pots.
Above, look at the awesome growth on the 'Fresh Look Red' celosia and 'Merlin Blue Morn' petunia.  I have been having problems with the 'Pampas Plume' celosia in the large pot.  They have been starting to rot even though I keep the soil on the dry side.  I think that I will put on some zinnia seedlings for insurance.
Above, a perfect flower of 'Eloquently Edged' daylily.
Above, the raised bed in peak bloom, the huge white clumps are double shasta daisies.
