a walk in the garden

Here are a few pictures from the garden this evening. Cooler temps made touring the garden much more pleasant than it has been for more than a week.

The daylilies are in peak bloom right now. Beautiful!

We’ve had this beautiful daylily for years. We don’t know the name of it so we call it “Paprika” as it is the color of dark rich paprika spice.

Russian sage is a striking accent in the garden. It has a long bloom time and attracts a lot of attention from our garden visitors.

We’re planning a plant sale for this Wednesday, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. If you’re in the area, stop by!

    WOW!!!!!! The mixture of colors of your Lilies is beautiful. I’m afraid that all the rain that we got ended the blooming time of many of our flowers. We seem to have a lot of green right now, but not all the color. Thanks for your visit to my blog and for sharing yours. Have a great day….

    Thank you for identifying my bee! I had a picture last year of the leaf cutter bee in flight carrying a leaf. I didn’t recognize it this time. The website you linked to describes exactly the aggressive behavior that I was referring to.

    Your daylilies are GORGEOUS! Something about them always makes me happy. And when they are massed like you have them, wow!
