Well here it is July 31st. The bountiful rains this spring and summer have certainly produced some lovely blooms and the daylilies are no exception. Here are a few in all their glory….
Greywoods Papa Joe
Lydia Bechtold (yellow) and Royal Ebony
An unknown funky orange
We also have a family of wrens
Bees on the Cimicifuga
And a new crop of bunnies…
Finally, there are lots of buds on the Brugmansia – August should be amazing
I like to see how many different kinds of plants I can grow. The abundant rain this year has brought out some spectacular blooms.
The Brugmansia ‘Jean Pasco’ (now 7 years old) emerged from dormancy and put on an early show with 12 blossoms. There are more buds forming, so August could be amazing.
My sister gave me an orchid cactus years ago. It didn’t bloom last year, and I was about to give it away. I put it out on the porch just because it looks tropical and lo and behold..it is blooming.. wowza
The Japanese Iris didn’t bloom last year either – too dry. But they got a lot of water this spring and early summer and they are blooming away now
July brings the daylilies. Not unusual.. just gorgeous. This one is ‘Royal Ebony’
Here we have ‘Glistening Bouquet’, ‘Radiation Biohazard, ‘Apricot Ruffles’ and ‘Blueberry Breakfast’
And a bunny update..
