The garden is at the peak of daylily season right now, with generous flushes of deep pink 'Hush Little Baby' blooming in the west garden each day. Of course that means I have to deadhead quite a few blooms each morning, but it's easy work to snap the dead ones off. Also blooming above are some apricot colored Asiatic lilies, lavender 'Walker's Low' catmint (Nepeta) and yellow 'Early Sunrise' tickseed (Coreopsis).
'Lavender Stardust' is also getting less than its fair share of sun in the east backyard garden, but I don't have a better place for it right now.
'Frances Joiner' is happier than ever this year while getting plenty of sun and plenty of water thanks to a foot-tall popup sprinkler head installed this spring.
