A Few More Daylilies! And perhaps a couple of other photos "thrown in!" :-)

Balloon Flower in foreground with flowering annual vinca, spider plant (not hardy!) in birdcage, Stachys Hummelo, and a small coreopsis ('Nana'?) on the right.

Phlox blooming in front of a (Yipes!) blooming Wild Parsnip!  Until it stops blooming, I guess I leave that alone!!!  Otherwise, What Would YOU Do about this Wild Parsnip plant???

 unnamed (but isn't it great?)

Belamcanda Blackberry Lily - notice how the spent flower twists as it shrivels.  :-)

Oh, boy.  I used to know the name of this day lily!
I obtained this as a dormant plant a couple of years ago.

The end, for now.  ;-)

What beautiful daylilies, and the blackberry lily is especially interesting the way you pointed out it twists after blooming! What a lovely time of year this is for our gardens! -Beth

Beth, You are so right! We had a lot of rain last night... but it tapered off to a sweet drizzle from time to time in the early morning!

Your garden is looking great! I love your daylilies. I too had the pleasure of meeting former blogger Iowa Boy. Have a great week!
