A pop of summer color

When I looked out the kitchen window this time last year, I knew what was missing: color in the backyard flower bed.

Not this year.

The bold red of these crocosmia flowers are visible. Yes! All the more impressive since the flowers themselves are maybe 2 inches. (I’ve been spreading them out from their initial spot at the corner of the house; should I do more?) They also pair really nicely with the yellow flowers in a shrub that anchors one end of the bed. Which the bees were all over tonight.
