First – I apologize if you’ve asked a question on the last couple of blog posts and I haven’t responded yet. This week has mostly been, get up at 5:30 am, drive two hours to the new house, work until we’re too tired to work anymore, drive two hours home, collapse, get up and do it again.
After this weekend, things will slow down a bit and I’ll get to my email.
In the meantime, check out what’s happening in my garden…
You will recall that I am very fond of lilies (All kinds of lilies) and I have lots. I don’t have quite as many as a used to – for some reason, the ones in the backyard haven’t done well this year…
But the daylilies out front…
I just love all these happy orange blooms.
Down by the sidewalk
These pink stunners are greeting every one who walks by.
And around the side…
Big, bold orange!
Elsewhere in the gardens….
I’ve got lots of these orange/red Black-Eyed Susans blooming. It feels a little early to me for Susans… but I won’t complain.
The Echinacea is just starting to bloom but it’s right on time.
My passion flower, which lives inside as a house plant during the winter, is loving it’s warm summer vacation outside.
The Yarrow is just starting to bloom. The flowers will get deeper in colour, then lighten completely. It’s a fascinating flower.
I actually got to enjoy all three of those big, juicy red ones one night after working at the new house all day. It was a wonderful treat. I can’t wait to grow more there!
