gladioluses and dahlias

More flowers are blooming!

I'm not sure why my gladioluses are bending over. The blossoms can't be that heavy, can they?

I planted them right next to the house thinking they would grow straight up the brick wall and frame my front window. But they insist on hiding behind the bushes.

The dahlia bulbs produced massive flowers.

Look! The blossom is larger than my hand!

I love this season.

Please, please, please, explain to me how you do this! Everything I plant keeps dying. I'm terrified our backyard is going to turn into a graveyard when we replant after the remodel.

I bought some hanging baskets of annuals for the front, and they're all dead or just about there. I didn't even know you could kill 4 o'clocks and petunias. Maybe I need a rock garden?
