White: Lilies, finally opening along our front walk.
Red: Yarrow, a brilliant explosion of color at the front of our flower bed.
Orange: Lantana, a sunny surprise spreading in and around a significant portion of Darren's cactus garden.
Yellow: Lemon Queen Sunflower, one of several varieties planted by Dylan.
Green: Poppy flower bud, which my kids think are hysterical. (But if I wasn't so polite, I'd admit that I think they look rather obscene.) Fascinating, they are.
Blue: Bachelor's Button, one of my favorites not only because it is blue (my favorite color), but also because I find it's irregular edges quite striking.
Purple: Penstemon, currently dominating the front left corner of our flower bed.
And finally, a white Shasta Daisy. I can't count the number of times I sneak out during the day just to steal a quick peek at the serene faces of these unassuming beauties. They calm me, instantly.
