Flowers it's that Time of year

 This is the beautiful Angelica aka wild celery or bent-leaf angelica a wild plant. To be honest with you it's white but Nan has a penchant for blues so she sometimes spray paints her flowers! 
 The gorgeous Delphiniums. I have purples, blues, lavender and whites. They grow really well here in Homer Alaska.

 What would a post be without our local Fireweed!! The wildflower that loves cool damp places. 

 Local visitors to the pond and yard. A cow with twin calves. This was taken June 30th. Our garden above was pretty badly treated by a night visiting moose. He left the broccoli just ate the leaves of the plant. Same on the cabbage. He liked the kohlrabi leaves too. 
 Orange lilies
 Orange Trollis
Yarrow in a bright pink, we also have white and light pink, hehe I have also spotted some blue yarrow around here. 
My lobelia.
Family has been here a week and just left yesterday. 
We walked down to K Bay Coffee. My d-i-l, daughter and son with the boys. Below taken in my yard with the zoom.

Thanks so much for the visit. 
I answer you if possible with your address.

Beautiful flowers. Do you have a new camera??
The Mama Moose is just huge. Nice of her to leave the fruit of the vine.
That can't be your are too young.

Such a beautiful display Nan - thanks so much for sharing them all - I love it when nature paints its canvas with such delicious colours, don't you. Hope all is well...

I look forward to seeing pictures of your flowers every year--the colors are so vibrant and the flowers are so gorgeous.

It seems like every year you always have twin calves showing up too if I'm not mistaken--are they fairly common there?

Good to see you again and your beautiful garden. Once in our Stockholm suburb, we had a moose in our garden. But that was a very long time ago now.
