Now let's see ... So far I've posted both siberian iris, two varieties of daylillies (I think), 2 lillies ... Think the main show's about ta begin.

This daylilly main bunch grows in a shady area and has been growing to about 5 feet tall - and it's been spreading in the lawn so I transplanted a few of these near the house. Course the warmth of the house has caused this earlier bloom - main show of this type a plant hasn't really started yet, but this is what that bloom's gonna look like.

How could I have missed this!

No this is where the main show's gonna happen:


and it's already begun ... Since I took this picture (2 days ago), two yellow lillies have opened up in here, plus 4 orange ones in the jungle ...

Then as an encore, I hope later this summer to catch some a the yellow birds that LOVE the sunflowers (didn't have digital last summer)

Way back on May 6, I posted the following:

I've been takin weekly snapshots of the garden (as per Jess's request) and I guess yer right, they do seem to progress rather quickly... and there's a lot more to come - The irises are still a couple a weeks away (and there are dif'rent varieties, as well as dif'rent colours), and the peonies, and the columbines, and the bleeding hearts and the poppies, and various other little surprises - Gosh I did even mention the main show - the lillies (my personal favourite) and the daylillies!

The show's just startin!

So Jess, when I say the main show, I meant it - way back in early May and again this mornin!

I thought it was already on!!

 :o

Hope I'm not over-hyping the lilies & the daylilies  :-\ by saying the last 25 pages were just a warm up.
