Summer Orange

The temperature in late afternoon is 90°F. Even early this morning the garden was hot and bright. Orange hues prevailed. The deer have returned recently, but somehow missed this daylily, aptly named ‘Tangerine.’

      Yes, it helps during this time. It surprised me how much orange I really had in the garden yesterday, although it is not concentrated all together in one section of the border.

      Thanks Sandy! Hope some bright, cheery weather is in store for you soon. After a week of temps in the nineties and terrible humidity, today arrived almost feeling like fall–crisp air, clear sky, high of 79–just a lovely day. By Friday the forecast calls for 101 degrees!

      Thanks! It’s a nice strong color and the deer left it alone last night so I was able to see one more blossom. Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to checking out your site.
