Coneflowers, annual black eyed susans and some kniphofia, 'Popsicle Mango'.

Michaele Anderson from east TN gives us a glimpse into the glamorous side of her splendid gardens.

"Good morning, fellow GPOD-ers. This is Michaele Anderson aka meander1 finally getting around to sharing some photos again. Seeing the summer pictures from the Southern Hemisphere this past week made me want to revisit some of my own from last year. Here are some of my favorites which include a few of the most special "flower" in my garden, my daughter, Tara. She was just being silly in pretend going to the prom mode since she found the glamor dress at Goodwill and couldn't resist buying it. I hope this coming summer will be as rewarding as last year's was."

This is a paver pathway that's prettiest when all the daylilies are in bloom.

I adore the variety of colors that the 'Cheyenne' coneflowers come in.

Daylily 'Off to the Races'

Annuals, black-eyed susans, coneflowers and an extra large oriental lily by the name of 'Big Brother'.

'Polish Spirit' Clematis

The columns and wooden arbor were built by my husband, Darwin. Some of the surrounding plantings are nandina 'Gulfstream' and hydrangea 'Firelight'.

Of course I had to include my magical pink muhly grass. The red-tipped bushes in the background are a crapemyrtle called 'Plum Magic'.
