Daylilies and More Cottage Garden

sweetannie4u(midOK_z6b/7a)June 18, 2010

Patio Garden - you can see how the rain beat some of the flowers over onto the garden path. I have to pull them up and try to stake them or something. They never look right after doing that though - Daylily (right front): Crimson Pirate Old-Fashioned Orange Daylilies towering in the back

Same Crimson Pirate Daylilies looking the other way towards the Rose Garden

Definitely says cottage to me! It looks like a place you can be quite comfortable in while enjoying the bright colors and sights. I love the "aged" look of the garden, lots of volunteers and seedlings weaving through, making new magic.

Those pink hollyhocks are just lovely, and the black and blue salvia practically glows it's so blue. I'd like to see more of that twig arbor that is just peeking out in the photo.

Those are beautiful pictures! The hollyhocks are so pretty. I especially like your picture with the hollyhock and statue. Even seeing all your previous posts/pictures I never knew you had a pond! That is fantastic!
