The daylilies have been outdoing themselves. I only have two varieties in my garden...a solid yellow and a red with a yellow center. Both of these are "old-timey" tried-and-true varieties given to me by my stepfather. The plants grow tall (2 feet in height) and multiply like crazy. They're the only varieties that thrive for me.
Two of my favorite roses blooming this month are Double Pink Knock-outs ‘Radtkopink’ and the vintage Seafoam Rosa 'Seafoam'...a white rose with small but plentiful fragrant blossoms.
Caladiums are emerging all over the garden, and while it's hard to pick just one favorite...actually quite impossible...I selected 'Kathleen' because it sports my favorite colors...pink and green. ;-) I had to include a stalk of the gorgeous pink and white gladiolas. They are a real treat as a cut flower.
The white seahorse is a new favorite. It's actually the bottom of a birdbath that belonged to my late Aunt Erna. The water basin must have broken, but she kept the base in her garden as a decor piece. I immediately fell in love with it.
And, two very pretty purple flowers...Stokes' Aster Stokesia laevis 'Omega Skyrocket' and Mealy Cup Sage Salvia farinacea 'Victoria Blue' are outdoing themselves.
