Lacey Sun in June
It is no wonder the Rudbeckia hirta 'Prairie Sun' perennial has won a few awards in this decade. Paired up with the Sambucus nigra (black lace) and you are sure to have a winning look in the garden. This morning I am sharing with you a little corner of my Master bedroom garden located along the back wood line of our yard. I am in love with the Proven Winner Elderberry bush having to stop myself from purchasing 'too many' of the same shrub. Is it possible to have too much of a good thing?!!! I had to share the new growth featured in the collage above. This shrub is similar to the Japanese Maple only I just read that according to the Humane Society of American Sambucus leaves, bark, roots, and buds can be toxic to pets. This is means that the plants are generally identified as having the capability for producing a toxic reaction. hmmm.....
Does the image above say SUMMER or what?!
I want to make note that this seed spreads easily so you will be guaranteed years of blooms. This beauty has been in this location for 3 years now.

Not sure where all my little kitty friends are after their breakfast was served this morning but this pretty little butterfly stopped by to say 'Good Morning' as I snapped my Lacey Sun photos to share with you this weekend.
What are some of your favorite combinations in your garden this summer? I would love to hear from you.
