Happy Returns Blooomed Today + Garden Pics
I had to go out of town today, but when I got back, I grabbed the camera. I know Happy Returns was going to open 3 blooms and it did. I also have a few more pictures of daylilies, and other plants. Avedon
Closeup of Happy Returns. How about those scapes? I have counted at least 49 and there may be more now.
How about 3 Happy Returns?
This is our first large flower opened. Actually, this is about the third one. The first two would not open properly because of the cold. I love the color, don't know the name--I call it "Cranberry Pink". Unfortunately, the flowers bloom down in the foliage and so it will probably be donated to a plant sale next year.
This is our second large flowered daylily to open. Another passalong plant, so no name. It is usually prettier than this, I think it's been affected by the cooler temps. I also wonder if it is an UF or that's just the way it looks.
I'd like an opinion on this. It is a very good bloomer.
Had to put in a favorite perennial--this is Salvia guaranitica ( hope I spelled that right). I think some people just call this blue salvia. We have several clumps of this scattered around our property. The hummingbirds love this plant.

If you are tired of blue, the burgundy autumn sage is starting to put on a show now.
Last one--Poppies do just that--they pop up where they are not expected. These 2 poppies just bloomed today next to a fence where they were not planted, but aren't they a pretty color--one has 2 coral-colored blooms, and the other is red.
