Ruby Slippers, which opens pure white and then turns red, is shifting its color.

    Oh, that lily is really beautiful. It really pops with color! We’re kind of at a transition time here between spring and summer bloomers. It’s always kind of a sad time for me when the crabapples and lilacs are finished blooming. But then the summer blooms start and it gets exciting again. 🙂

      Hope your summer flowers will catch up soon to cheer you Beth. We’re a few days ahead I guess. I noticed that transition period–a lull that made me restless. Now it’s turning dry and hot, 92F yesterday.

    Lovely! I’m enjoying the daylilies now too. I admired several Hydrangeas at my local garden center recently but made myself walk away – planting them here, especially in early summer, is a death sentence.

      It’s turned hot here, 92F yesterday, and no rain for a week. Wrong time here also for hydrangeas! I propped them up by watering yesterday but I can’t keep up with their needs.

      I keep a text file with all the plants listed and try to label my photos using the same text. In the text file I sometimes list dates, where purchased and sometimes, where planted, to help me remember. Is that what you meant?

        That’s a good suggestion. I was also referring to actual labels in the garden. Sometimes, I have been known to dig something up by mistake in the spring because I forgot it was there. 😦

        That I have no good suggestions for. Plastic labels get broken. Sometimes I place a stone or pattern of bark chips to remind me something is there but that’s unreliable.
