Yellow plus

The main color in my large garden is yellow this week.
At the top of the garden is yellow loosestrife. This is a very aggressive plant but I love it!
At the bottom are sundrops. They also spread like crazy but i love to pass along plants so I just dig up what I don't want. The foliage turns a reddish color after blooming so it adds interest for the whole season.
I'm not sure what this rose is. I've had it for years and it's doing very well this year.
I'm also not sure what type clematis this is. I dug it up where it wasn't needed anymore. It is next to my driveway but looks like I'll need a bigger trellis for it.
There is feverfew all over the place! I like the contrast to the rough wood of my shed. It volunteered here and I am happy with that.
I'm headed to the garden! Have a great Father's Day!

Nice garden. I used to have that sun drops in my garden and thought they were weeds. But thanks to your blog because before I didn't know their name.

My garden has many of the same plants.

I thought I'd never get the feverfew out of my garden last year! That has to be the most invasive thing I've ever had to deal with.

You've got lovely flowers, Jean!

I love the cheerfulness of the yellow flowers. Sundrops are so pretty. Your mystery rose looks lovely as does your clematis.
