Roses are deadheaded and daylilies are blooming!
This past weekend was a very busy one for us. We traveled 4 hours (one way) for a nephew's wedding and then back home again. What with working full time, and either having company or gone ourselves for the past 6 weekends, I have really fallen behind in the gardens.
However, on Sunday after we slept in until 10 AM (didn't get home until 3 AM) both DH and I worked in the gardens for the rest of the day. DH insisted that I show him how to deadhead roses and he helped me, so that by the end of the day all were done! Fantastic! He did a great job too! He is not a gardener, more of a planner/builder of things, but he knew how much it bothered me that I had fallen so far behind. What a sweetie!
The daylilies started to bloom last week and there are many scapes with loads of blooms still to come. Even with the horrible weather we have had this year, the DLs look like they will have a great year.
