I finally got some photos taken. After getting through the 4th of July, the butchering - or should I say, trimming of our 50+ yr old Oak trees in the front, and visiting our son in eastern Iowa last weekend, I thought I'd better get some photos taken before the 'show' is over. My Daylilies are spilling color all along the flower bed every day. Some of them, I know their names . . . some of them not.
My Garden Angel sits among the Purple Coneflowers ~
Monarda, Quick Fire Hydrangea, Black Eyed Susans, Daylily 'Aglow', two other Daylilies that I don't know the name of ~
I don't know the name of this one, but this and one other plant put some double flowers on this year ~
Most of my Hostas are in full bloom now. I'm not real crazy about the flowers, so I will cut the flower stalks all off shortly after they bloom ~
I'm not sure what this plant is, but a local nursery thinks it's a type of Climantis that crawls on the ground rather than needing a trellis. It has been getting thicker every year and looks like I'll have a bunch of blooms shortly. They are almost like Daylilies, in that their blooms only last a day.
I took this on the 4th of July. This Hummingbird Moth had quite a feast! I had to wait until dark and use my flash to get a clear photo. It's wings move so fast, that they are a blur. It wasn't afraid of me, but the fireworks explosions made it jump every time.
This is my first post with Ms. Green Thumb Jean and her Bloomin' Tuesday. I've been reading her posts for a few years and am now brave enough to share a post with her followers.
