|Bee balm 'Bergamo' with carnations and Daucus.|
|Annual aster makes a great cut flower, shown here with bee balm 'Bergamo'.|
|Hymenocallis - Peruvian daffodil.|
|Orlaya is ready to be picked. It should be put immediately into water once you cut a stem.|
|Daucus carota looks great in a vase.|
On the left is a chocolate lace flower in its prime picking stage--flat and open.
At the right is one that still has cupped flower stems and tight buds.
|Tomato 'Dwarf Confetti' raring to grow in an 18" diameter pot.|
|Tomato 'Tasmanian Chocolate' in a 15" pot.|
Ill-advised pairing of two tomato plants and a basil. Tomatoes 'Dwarf Confetti',
'Dwarf Velvet Night' and Basil 'Amazel'.
|Tulip 'Akebono' certainly has a lot going on, with extra petals and the most delicate red edging.|
|As 'Akebono' matures and opens, it continues|
to add a little intrigue to your garden.
|'Lady Jane' is closed up tightly in the morning...|
|...but with warmth and sunshine, opens to reveal a more colorful attitude.|

|Unknown Agapanthus from 2016 blooming in 2017.|
|Flowers of Agapanthus 'Neverland' have a delicate |
purple stripe at the center of each petal.
|Agapanthus 'Elaine' was struggling to be released from the pot she's been in for nearly a year.|
|Albuca spiralis in early March, 2017.|
|Here it is in the same pot September, 2017 after a summer spent|
on the patio, its little green bulb began to sprout.
|Flowers of Albuca spiralis don't have a pleasant fragrance--unless you like |
your flowers to smell like a used saute pan.
