Here Comes the Sun.... Flower

The little green bud opened to reveal its yellow glory.
I am not sure where the seed for this plant blew in from, but it seems very happy with its new home.
Of course, it chose the wrong side of the garden... the pink side.  (The other side is the red/orange/yellow side) But, oh well.  A little splash of yellow in there isn't the end of the world.
And speaking of pink, the Cone flower is looking kind of burnt and tired unfortunately, but I love the little curled stamen all over the cone that you can see if you enlarge the picture. 
And finally, the Russian Sage is fluffing up nicely.  I was a little afraid it was just going to be sad and pathetic and then die, but it seems to have perked up.
And of course the camera I am using now doesn't do really close up very well, but the tiny flowers are soooo sweet. They have these pretty little dark purple stripes on white down in the center of the flower.  Very nice.
