    I was just wondering, what are some of your favorite flowers in the garden. I live in Indiana (zone 5) and can't decide on what flowers to try and grow, if you have pictures even better. Thanks

    Sounds like us last year, we had around 1.7 inches of rain from the end of march until september. Hot, miserable, humid, but no rain, broke records for days of heat.
