Week of July 17, 2011

This week is going to be a scorcher here! It's way too hot for me to be doing anything much outside. So pictures get taken in the early morning or late evening. Here's hoping this heat doesn't bring any hail with it...got my fingers crossed.

Here's what's new in my yard right now.

Daylily 'Vatican City' has got the richest colour!

Daylily 'Nefertitti' is certainly an eye catcher too.

Heliopsis 'Lorraine Sunshine' is looking very sunny.

'Vatican City' is a stunner! That's a very healthy and cheery 'Lorraine Sunshine' too.

Laurie, i have 'Lorraine Sunshine' as well, but the petals are often in tatters. Not sure if it's bugs or bird that are doing it.

Heliopsis 'Lorraine Sunshine' and a prolific malva:

Phlox Dave beginning to bloom:

Red and white area:

The Princess' garden. :)

Clematis 'Little Duckling' (in the Princess' garden):


No idea where these came from, but they sure are pretty:

Laurie your daylilies are gorgeous!
Marcia your princess garden is so sweet and the reason for having it is sweet too.

pink and white lupin from Band of Noble seeds

Salpiglossis from Bolero mix

Poppies that reseed themselves in that bed every year

Percival delph, for some reason this one stays short in this bed which works well for me

2 more noid peonies
