Summer is here and the daylilies are in full swing.
It’s great to go through the garden and smell the wonderful fragrance. Did you know daylily flowers are edible? The petals taste like sweet lettuce. You may see us nibbling on the flowers as you drive by. Sprinkled among the daylilies are the ‘Becky’ daisies. This is a great plant, with sturdy stems that never droop or fall over.
This daylily is ‘Ed Brown.’ So pretty, with its ruffled edge and yellow-green throat.
We had a plant sale this afternoon and raised some money for the mission fund at church. These little guys napped on the porch by my table while their parents shopped the yard for daylilies. Aren’t they sweet?
I’m getting a head start on the menu for a change. Here’s what we’re planning for next week.
Tortellini with Mushrooms
Crock Pot Brown Sugar Chicken
Steamed Green Beans
