6 for Sunday

I confess to being an extremely amateur gardener. My efforts are to attract hummingbirds and butterflies to my backyard. This year I have failed miserably. Few hummers (all male), no butterflies. By now, the yard should be a dangerous place to walk, dodging hummers thinking my red shirt is a flower, and curious Monarchs looking to find the perfect nectar plant. The weather, fierce storms and wind, the rain in deluges then nothing for 10 days ? God, please not the virus! Or maybe they have sense to stay away from us humans. Anyway, here’s hoping that July will bring a host of fluttering to everyone’s yard. Until then, this is today’s lineup:

Salvia Black and Bloom just waiting for the hummers
That’s about 2 1/4″ of rain on Friday. More tonight, tomorrow…Oh, hello Yarrow!
The last of the Buttercups. Goodbye til next year.
I first planted Kniphofia (Red Hot Poker) 10 years ago. Due to my shady conditions, this is all I can hope for.
Daisies
Hummer chocolate cake, Bee Balm Jacob Kline. Where are the hummers?

Until next time, flower power to you all!
