All my flower beds are mixed plantings, cottage garden style, and I enjoy mixing annuals and perennials together. Some years the results are better than others. :) One of my favorites this year was when the dark purple Japanese Irises, pink roses, and yellow daylilies all bloomed together along the fence.

Here are some photos taken over the last few weeks of my lamp post flower bed in the front yard. This is a narrow bed that runs alongside the front sidewalk. I usually always plant annuals in this bed, but this year I also added some of the new Echinacea ‘Cheyenne Spirit’ plants I grew from seed. I also planted purple Angelonia and Celosia ‘Fresh Look’ Red (both grown from seed), and a few Sunpatiens. (click photos to enlarge)
