Today (02-June-2017) — New Jersey

More new Red Poppy Flowers, and what I think is Drummond’s Phlox (Annual Phlox). The Phlox wasn’t blooming yesterday, so a new wildflower for the year. I am looking forward to seeing what else comes back from last year, and what new comes up in the new wildflower meadow sections.
