'Spider Man'? Daylilies with White Salvia & Pink Yarrow

While we were away on our little vacation it finally managed to rain. I’m not quite sure how much, but it was raining when we got home last night. It was nice to see the garden so happy! When we left everything was looking pretty sad, even with a watering. It appears that while we were gone all of the day lilies have decided to bloom at once! The Tiger Lilies, the ‘Stella de Oro’ (yellowy orange),  the ‘happy returns’ (yellow), and a couple of other ones which names escape me. It is amazing how quickly my purple garden turned orange and yellow. I actually love the combination of some of my cool colored salvias and irises with the bright daylilies. It is amazing sometimes how quickly the garden changes!

What is blooming in your garden right now?

  1. Day lilies are blooming, all different colors, considering planting more. Put in Knock out roses in front of the house and they are doing well, a couple of wandering knock out roses in back yard. Jasmine and Gardinias are blossoming too. And of course my Gerber Daisies are back and blooming, I now have 9 of them !!

  2. I am surprised that your daylilies are blooming at the same time as mine! I figured that you would be enough ahead that yours would be done already. I have a couple of pretty Gerber Daisies in pots right now that I will give to you when you are up. They still look okay, but I know that they will wilt too much as it gets hotter here and I know how well they do in your yard!

  3. Our lilies bloomed while we were away too. I was shocked considering how warm it was. Our Gerber Daisy is wilting too. But we have tomatoes and jalapeno peppers coming!
