These were supposed to be canterbury bells, but they came up purple balloon flowers! 🙂 They are so tall this year! I guess I will have to break down and plant more canterbury bells.
The little buds look so much like cute tiny balloons! Once they open though, they are more like stars! 🙂
My false daisies were a bit too finished for now so I cut them down and will await new growth for a second round of blooming. If I had been on top of it I could have just clipped the tops and they would have continued to bloom. Life sometimes gets in the way of good yard intentions. 🙂
Have a happy week! Please let me know what fun things have been popping up in your yards this early summer season! I would love to read all about it! 🙂

One thought on “Balloon Flowers?!”
I love balloon flowers! Mine were a bit “leggy” and tall this year though. I think it’s time for a bigger planter.
