It is so good to be home. However, I found the need to catch-up on a little sleep took priority over the garden work I had wanted to do. Work travel weekends are a little awkward in the summer.
At any rate, I had several new kids in the yard today.
El Desperado is a favorite. It is so odd, because he didn’t bloom much last year. This year, lots of scapes and buds. I moved him 3 feet. Right next to him is Canyon Colors, who bloomed like crazy last year but did nothing this year. I think I will divide it this fall and see. Time to start giving away extra roots!
Lime Frost is my only real off-green daylily. I love this one with its big, fluffy near white blooms. And, it sounds like a treat from Dairy Queen. (Same bloom with and without the sun shining on it.)
Mini-Pearl is in my yard because my grandma’s name was Minnie Pearl (she hated in and dropped the Minnie). My car is named Mini Pearl, too.
Razzmatazz is a cool little purple flower that reminds me of Purple de Oro.
It was kind of a low bloom day – less than 20. Last year it peaked again the 3rd week of July. I am hoping!
