Love the fact that I have now had two full seasons with my red, white & blue salvia...they have just kept on going on & on. The newest section of garden in the foreground... has grown heaps since I took the photo in February...

The salvias are superb, Patricia, as is the whole garden. :D What are the yellow flowers peeping through in the foreground?
