We are have a beautiful morning going here today. A great way to begin the weekend. We are receiving some much needed rain. I woke to find a good half inch of rain in the gauge. The rain paused long enough for us to take Luna for a nice long walk. The poor girl hasn't been able to walk very far due to the temps not being below 90 most of the day. When we got out to walk it was a lovely 68F. Aaaahhhh
In the garden the Asiatic lilies are blooming.
The above and below lilies were a mixed bag of 'Tango Blend' These were the only two colors that came up. I did want the yellow one too. Too bad it did show its face. I like the dark one best. I am drawn to dark lilies.
This dark maroon one looks almost like chocolate. Yummmm.
This dark orange one is marvelous too.
Of course I like the lighter side of lilies such as this 'Grand Cru' .
The daylilies are beginning to bloom too. This swathe of Song Sparrow are singing out loud.
This daylily below is one of my bird series. I am not sure if it is Screech Owl, Baltimore Oriole or something totally different. If anyone could enlighten me I would be most happy.
This one is
Big Bird Tetrina's Daughter. It is sort of small because of how dry it has been. My poor garden has been assaulted by the weather this year. Spring was long wet and cool. Lately it has been hot and dry. I hope with this rain it sort of evens out.
The smaller daylilies are beginning to bloom too. This one is a small double named Bubbly.
This one is so old I have lost it's name. I brought it here from my previous garden 16 years ago.
This small one I bought many years ago too. I guess I was into those small yellow daylilies then. I am doing a little editing of this post as I found the names of a couple of these daylilies. The one below it June Bug. Cute name for a small daylily. My birthday is in June so this is probably why I bought this.
Isn't it interesting how our tastes in garden plants change over the years? I haven't bought a new daylily in several years. I am leaning toward upkeep now. My small suburban garden if fairly full. Now I have to edit to add. It seems that more shrubs are creeping into the mix. How is your garden evolving?
