today’s garden

I took a few pictures as I mowed this morning.

The tiger lilies (Lilium Tigrinum) came from DH’s family farm.

The hosta ‘Janet’ has thrown an all green sport. We need to separate that and replant it elsewhere. Maybe we’ve got ‘Janet’s Green Sox.’


Hostas ‘Samurai’ and ‘Waving Wuffles’

After the four inches of rain we had on July 4, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to mow the entire yard. We have some low spots that can stay wet for a while. But I got it all done. And enjoyed all the flowers and hostas at the same time. 🙂

You can see more gardens at Jean’s Bloomin’ Tuesday. Check them out!

    There is just something about daylillies that takes my breath away. My hubby doesn’t understand why i keep buying more and more. It’s nice to be around people that GET it. I love your color combinations, Rhonda! The startling white with the rich burgandy is beautiful.

    Your lilies are just gorgeous! I tried some Hosta here in Arizona but it never got more than 2 inches tall- I don’t think it likes the heat but I did give it a shady area.

    Rhonda, I really like the combination of the daisies and the daylilies. I also like the hosta Janet. I’m looking for some bright plants for the shade garden. Jean

    Love the look of the lilies with the daisies in the background.

    I love the contrast of the daylilies and daisies. Just beautiful. They look so natural together.

    Hi Rhonda, you have the magic touch with the daylilies and hostas. Four inches of rain, wow! No wonder both of those plants love your place. We could use rain like that here.
