We have had rain but with this continuing heatwave it seems to evaporate on contact! I am not ready to be dragging around hoses, watering cans and sprinklers but alas..it is the only way to keep the show going. Things already look like they do at the end of August in my garden. I still have some stalwart bloomers who enjoy the sunbathing.
This rose was found by my sweet husband in the bottom of a bargain bin at the Aldi grocery store. I'm not usually good with "body bagged" roses but I took a chance on this one. It is a floribunda called Camelot. I am impressed with its disease resistance and clear coral pink blooms like this one:
I have a few more daylillies that have bloomed since my last post. I know none of their names unfortunately.
I have lovely pink blooms for the first time on this asiatic lilly:
I am still lamenting over my pot ghetto...still too many things to get into the ground. All the while I'm steadily potting up my rose cuttings that are ready to come out of the misting system. I see now how this love of propagation is fueling the vicious "can't get it all in the ground syndrome...." but i wouldn't have it any other way! Hello summer!
