4th of July blooms

Tomorrow is the 4th of July and the garden is wild! We are finally seeing the Coneflowers appear, but they are mostly hiding behind False Sunflower (Heliopsis helianthoides) and masses of Wild Bergamot (some people call it bee balm). We've spent the last three mornings weeding! The mornings have been so pleasant we really haven't minded being outside, but the weeds do seem more prolific than usual this year. Of course my farmer dad thinks a lot of the plants and flowers in our garden are weeds!
