|Red Flax Linum grandiflorum var. rubrum|
|I wish the owner would have been there so I could ask how she got these|
beauties to grow so well. I've never had much luck.
|This looks like German Catchfly or Viscaria oculata also a gorgeous clump.|
|Other goodies in the garden...|
|all in this busy, vibrant front garden.|
|Beside it, was this tree, a Dogwood of some kind, with ladybug-like fruits...|
|on foliage already celebrating autumn.|
|Here is another front garden that caught my eye.|
|How is this for a gorgeous stand of weeping Love-Lies-Bleeding?|
|It was also growing along the fence.|
|And here we have a "weeping" stand of Joe Pye, after the rain.|
|Finally, I had to take a photo of this hell strip planted with orange Zinnias.|
I'm thinking this might be in celebration of Oregon State University, just a few blocks away.
OSU's colors are orange and black.

I got a lot done in the garden this weekend. After all the rain we've had, the soil is easy to work so weeds are getting the heave ho. I hope you all have a wonderful week.
