Though the daylilies are beginning to bloom, the garden is a little sparse on color right now. The earliest daylilies, like ‘Black Eyed Susan,’ ‘Stella d’Oro,’ and ‘Bitsy,’ are blooming well. Others are just beginning to open, like ‘Priceless Pearl.’
While we wait on the daylilies, there are a lot of other things to see. We are really enjoying the hostas. This bed is under the Southern Red Oak in the back yard.
Hosta ‘Gold Standard’ with ‘Lemon Lime’ in the front…
This row of hostas is by the carport, near the back door.
This hosta bed is under the old mulberry tree in the backyard.
We have ‘June’ in two places in the yard. This one, under the mulberry tree, is in deep shade and the color is soft and dark.
‘Fried Bananas’ is a quick growing hosta and doesn’t mind some sun.
This bed near the front porch will look a bit neater once it is mulched. The hostas are (left to right) ‘Torchlight,’ ‘Royal Standard,’ and ‘Grand Tiara.’
We don’t know the name of this one, but it’s a pretty one.
‘Squash Casserole’…one of my favorites.
Under the redbud tree by the east porch.
I have other hosta pictures, but I’ll save them for another day. Here’s a look at a few other garden gems. Aren’t the hydrangeas beautiful? I love these plants.
North of the fenced garden is Miscanthus ‘Morning Light.’ Very pretty in even the smallest breeze.
These red lilies bloom in several parts of the yard.
In a few weeks there will be a lot of color to share when the daylilies put on their show.
