Cool weather twins

Waitforspring(6 MA)June 6, 2012

The weather here has been cool for the last few days and it shows. The flowers aren't quite open and the color is less saturated. Hope the rest of the flowers look better.

Wow, that one really is no way near open. Don't know what to say about the weather. It should slowely be warming up more as we get to the weekend.

That is what happened early when it was cool. It will normalize as the weather does, at least it did here.

Not only did the flowers not open all the way, but they were mush by 5:30 tonight. Looked like they usually do the next morning.

Isn't it ironic? This cool weather has been absolutely delightful with the windows open wide at night, and my dog is enjoying long walks and there are no mosquitos, and the lawn is pretty, and there is no air conditioning bill. But the poor daylilys are shivering and refuse to come out and play. In my yard I have noticed that the reds are opening best and the orange/peach/coral are having the hardest time.

It is disappointing when they try to open and you want to help them, but you know you can't. I bet in a couple of days we will be seeing better blooms.

lol! Christine, I like your comment about the daylilies coming out to play. That's cute.
