August 2- Stargazer

Stargazer August 2

We have a quarter acre lot in an established neighborhood close to Goddard Space Flight Center (where I work). The summer after we moved in Frank started putting in flower beds throughout the yard. We have glads, dahlias, lilies, poppies, impatients, pansies and tulips.

Once we ran out of yard space for the flower beds (I wanted to preserve some of the lawn ;-) ), Frank started adding flower pots on our deck. This season we've had an incredible array of stargazers... orange and white and this beautiful pink. I'm not sure how he timed it, but we've had Stargazers blooming since mid June!
