More Flowers from the Sidewalk Garden

Here are some more flowers after a rain shower. The purple balloon flower is back with its pentagon looking pod. The ballon flower is also known as the Chinese Bellflower or Platycodon grandiflorus.

The neat pentagon shaped flower pod that has a balloon look to it.

Here is a pink hydrangea which I think signifies the soil is base (pH over 7) while blue ones have pH before 6 with acidic soil.

These yellow flowers belong to the common mullein (Verbascum thapsus). The stalks can get 7 feet tall and the leaves grow out radially that feel felt like.
