I was looking at a container on the deck that has some petunias in it, and spotted this unusual blossom. On closer inspection, I realized that a leaf-cutting bee had symmetrically taken circles out of the flower . Never seen that before.
This is one phlox plant which was originally all bi-colour. Now some of the stalks bear all pink flowers. I kind of like it that way - coordinating colours but different designs.
This magenta phlox looks like it's wearing a fascinator hat. How very British! But in reality, the white plant is just poking through the magenta one.
The garden is always full of surprises.
