in bloom for week of August 24

My first batch of apricot dahlias is coming out of the field. Why didn't I grow these last year??? I bought the tubers from a 5th generation Dutch bulb grower and he has taken good care of them. I can't wait for the pink and black varieties to bloom!

This is one of my favorite color combinations -- mustard and orchid zinnias.

Creamy vanilla marigolds are new to Marigold and Mint this year. Aren't they pretty when combined with yellow marigolds?

And finally a few of the heirloom roses. I can't wait for these to be great big rose bushes next year!
