It’s early summer and the daylilies are blooming, with more opening every day. We have about 400 daylily cultivars in the garden, so it’s exciting to see what has opened in the past 24 hours. But that’s not all that’s going on out there.
The hostas are beginning to bloom. You can see the lavender blooms of ‘Blue Cadet’ to the right of the birdbath in this picture.
In the front yard, these hostas are under the shade of a redbud tree, with a daylily bed extending into the sun.
‘Squash Casserole’ is sending up its first flower scapes.
The ‘Royal Standard’ hosta will send up its pure white flowers later in the season. Right now, we enjoy the hydrangeas that back them at the front porch.
I don’t know the name of these white lilies, but they look just as beautiful without a name as they would with one.
The same thing holds true for the pink ones. These are wonderful in a vase, lasting for a few weeks as new buds open at the top.
Of course, the daylilies are the star attraction this time of year.
‘Spider Man’…a beautiful red one.
Did I mention the raspberries are ripe?
