Just to prove my point (um, Frank's point), here's some more red. A humble hollyhock (alcea sp.) growing behind the house along with the pink and black ones.
The second photo is a bit wider view of the Monarda in the back corner garden. This gives a bit more perspective to the planting area, and reveals the minty origins of the plant. I'm a leaf man, remember. That's the part that usually reveals to me the origins of something I'm not sure of what it is. Works most of the time, but then, as the FBL denizens know, it's far from infallible.
Fire up for a new week folks. It's here already.
