Flower for the Day Rose at the Lake House 7-25-14

We are going on our third year at the Lake House. This is the first rose that has made it through the rose eating deer onslaught. A single pink beauty surrounded by nibbled rose bush branches. 

A pleasant surprise.

Flower for the Day Hollyhock

These days all my hollyhocks (Alcea) are orphans brought intothe gardens on the  "wings of a bird" - or more likely dropped off by a bird. If they are out of the wind by a fence they grownicely and continue to produce flowers at the end of a strong stalk.

Flower for the Day Delphinium 7-23-14

Delphinium (Ranunculaceae family) is also called larkspur. It grows in white and 
purple. Each flower contains five petal-like sepals and four small true petals.
I always forget how petals and sepals differ. Can somebody help me please?

Flower for the Day Monarda 7-22-14

There are whole fields of monarda this year in the back. They
are always well attended by bees.

Up close it is quite delicate.

Flower for the Day Crown Beard

Crown beard (Verbesina) is by far the most successful flower in the sunny wildflower gardens. They grow taller than me on a very strong stem and thrive for several months.
