Flowers in My Garden






























Okay here are a few things going on in the garden, or I should say in bloom in the garden. The little yellow thing is malampodium. These are annuals and I only bought three but I really like them. They stay nice and neat and bushy. The yellow daylilly is Happy Returns. Most folks go for the Stella D'Oro yellow lilly but Happy Returns blooms longer. The peach lilly is Double Siloam. Then there's my huge old common garden variety hydrangea and my all time favorite, the lace cap hydrangea which this year is really all blue and purple. Such a delicate thing she is. My red High Society rose which knocks you down with it's smell and my old galvanized herb bucket. The mini bush basil is going to town. Enjoy!
