One Bloomin' Season - Color My World
No words, just pictures. Welcome to my garden.
Circles - a wonderfully fragrant daylily
Frosted Vintage Ruffles
Love That Pink - which this year is more apricot. I've read that soil conditions can make the colors vary. Might be why I have so much trouble trying to figure out what everything is.
Oriental Ruby. Also, this daylily has like six different shades of red depending on the lighting.
And the real Spanish Beauty. I found a picture on a French website. I had thought this was a different daylily. Guess not. Now I think that what I had been calling Spanish Beauty is really Sunset Sonata. I say this because one man's melony pink is another man's orange or apricot. I chose one of my daylilies and looked up pictures online from nurseries and some of the photos were not at all near the color of others. So confusing. Good thing I am not a hybridizer.
Astilbe Fanal (red) Hosta ventricosa - a real purple
A large bed of dragon's blood sedum fills out a street side planting.
Enjoy your week.
