    That’s a beautiful variety of blooms, Susie. Your burgundy-colored daylly reminds me of my ‘Spanish Harlem’ variety, a favorite which is just finishing its spring run.

      Thanks Kris. We bought these daylilies from a daylily breeder and at the time it didn’t occur to me to ask about names. This has been a good year for daylilies.

      Thanks Tina. I’m trying to improve my summer garden. Spring is much easier for me to plan. As you are experiencing, it’s way too hot for June.

      Thanks Cathy! The rabbits have eaten the center out of almost all the liatris so I thought I’d better not wait for that one to bloom!

    Your daylilies are so nice, and I’m usually not a daylily person!
    Love seeing all the color, but I saw your vase of gardenias and can’t even imagine the fragrance. I’d have to move it out as well, but wow it must be something having them all in bloom.
    I saw some inexpensive ones with plenty of buds and was tempted to splurge on what will likely be an annual. Hmmmm 🙂

      The gardenias were spectacular this year, not just mine but everyone’s seemed happy. They’re all faded brown now by the unreasonable heat (97F today), but they’ve lasted pretty well–about 3 weeks. I’d say yes to an inexpensive one even as an annual.
