Sunny Solstice

Blythe Spirit rose, wild daisy, alchemilla in the Rose garden.

Mystery Dianthus. A velvety almost black dianthus with magenta spots and pink edging.
My Mom received a flower bouquet which included a few of these amazing pinks. I took one of them and stuck it in her garden, hoping it would grow roots. It did! And now I have this gorgeous flower in my garden too!

I watched this ladybug having lunch on my roses yesterday, came back later and all the aphids were gone.
