Today's Flowers #47: Veronica

These Veronicas were planted by Grace in front of our foundation plant, Rhododendrons. They grow very well and give beautiful blue flowers all summer long year after year. I mean to move them to a more permanent perennial garden someday, but never got around to do it.

They are in full bloom now and attract a lot of bees.

Here is a view of the whole plant, they are quite tall and the spikes should be cut after flowering to promote repeat blooming.

I just love your flower images. They're all so good that it's hard to pick favorites, but the veronica with the honeybee and the betty boop rose are especially wonderful!
