Curious, what are the vertical purple flowers in the last few pictures? Prairie Blazing Star? Your garden looks great though!

Yes, it is the liatris (Blazing Star). We have the white variety in the back - just put it in this year. These 5 multiplied from the 3 we had last year. Will be nice to see them continue to expand.

Nice collection of blooms. I've got a couple of them blooming myself.

I have to ask; what cultivar of Nasturtiums are you growing?

They looks peach in your pic and I'm not sure I've ever seen a peach colored one for sale.

This year I put all my eggs in a climbing Nasturtium basket and am really regretting it since it isn't doing much.

I like the color as well - there are a few oranges mixed in as well. I usually save the tabs and will have to see if I have them. I may not have it though.

Great shots, especially the one with the bee.
