I have a lot of purple phlox blooming right now. The aqua blue milkcan is right next to this arbor. It is surrounded by purple phlox as well as the pink dahlias. You can see just a touch of its blue color at the bottom of this photo:
The planters on the arbors have not done nearly as good as I expected them to. By now they should be hanging down at least 3 feet. You can still see the planters and it's nearly mid-August.
The phlox in the front of the pic below is called 'Little Laura'. As the name implies, it's a short phlox. LL is perfect for the front of borders or along paths as mine is planted here. The color is very bright, a bit harsh, so that may discourage some people from planting it.
This purple phlox is in front of the new path. So now I know the mildewy phlox I removed was white.
On the deck another dahlia is blooming. This one is a plain Jane compared to Myrtle.
The first canna has bloomed. It's called Tropicanna Black. TP is my tallest canna - over six feet.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
