My yard and garden have seemed to take a long time to start blooming with the cool off in the month of June. But alas, today I have blooms everywhere. All of our time has been spent completing the chicken house and puting on the final touches (read: paint and flower beds) so things seem weedy to me and I will fix that soon.
This stand of daylilies has been here for who knows how many years. I have thinned them and moved them around but they are so darn crowded that something has to be done again soon. I must say though, they put on a good show when they start. Hundreds of blooms open each day and they really are amazing to see. People see them from the road and often drive in to see them. I am always flattered as I have heard them called 'ditch lilies' many time. These are also what I have as the blog header picture here.
My bleeding heart took a while to rebound after my dog took a nice nap on top of it. It has very few blooms but this is only year two in my garden. The greenery is nice and if I can keep Marley off of it, it should be beautiful next year!
And this pretty pink daylily started blooming today too! I don't know what the name of this is, I actaully don't think it had a tag when I bought it but is is pretty and I can't wait to be able to divide it and add it to other areas in the yard.
And finally the coreopsis. I seem to kill this every time I plant it in my yard so I was thrilled to see it come back nicely. I have tons of babies in the butterfly garden and will transplant those to the island bed on Sunday. I love the punch of color this adds to a mainly green strip so I invite it to grow larger. We will see if I am crying a different tune next year.
