Earlier in the day the light was hitting the pink Astilbe in such a way that it really glowed. By this point in the day the Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola' was taking more of the attention with its fabulous yellow sprawl. The fine foliage to the left is an annual, Ammi visnaga 'Green Mist', a new one to me this year. I suppose cosmos could work too, as well as some other fine leaved options in the 2' range. The evergreen backdrop is hedged Ilex crenata. I liked this little vista today.
