The bush this yellow flower is on was here when we moved in 40 years ago. We still don't know what it is.

It's a good year for the onions (allium) in our front yard.Lots of plants with multiple flowers.
We've had this red sage for only 20 years.
These asters hung on through the drought and this year they are prospering and multiplying.
There are buds on our keckelia plants and the flowers are starting to open.
This one adopted a striking pose.
Our black sages keep getting bigger, year after year. I think that the deep purple stamens make a wonderful contrast again the white petals.
We have hundreds or maybe thousands of elegant clarkia plants in the backyard. Elegant indeed.
I didn't notice the white crab spider when I photographed this malacothamnus flower.
