Helianthus annuus “Moulin Rouge”, a sunflower so dark it almost appears black in the daytime sun,
Monarda viridissima; a new and interesting variety for me that seems to bloom about two months after my more “typical” monardas (i.e., didyma) and is in fact still in bloom right now. While the hummingbirds don’t seem to regard this as a nectar source, the bees certainly do, and its color and form are both highly unique. I think they look like miniature bromeliads!
Simple but beautiful public planting of small flowers in Geneva.
A few views of a beautiful garden in a Geneva park that makes creative use of edibles such as kale and chard.
