Greetings from my near summer garden

An old rose, that I found on the property years ago.  Fragrant perfection.

Triumphant emergence!!!
Kniphofia (pronounced /nɪpˈhoʊfiə/)[1] (Tritoma, Red hot poker, Torch lily, Poker plant)




Delphinium is beautiful and generally toxic.  The name delphinium comes from the Greek word delphis, a reference to the flower's resemblance to the bottle-like nose of the dolphin. 

Astilbe buds are so beautiful before they open,  it also known as False Goat's Beard and False Spirea.
