Nothing is compared to the excitement...at least for me...of the first daylily bloom! Aptly named 'Eenie Weenie', she is only 10" tall and bloom measures under 2"! A very bright shade of yellow with paler midribs and re-curved petals. Other than Stella d'Oros, Eenie Weenie is the FIRST daylily to bloom in my garden! Other daylilies are weeks away from color so I'll enjoy this one even more. I'm sorry to say this picture does not do justice..she is totally sweet and cheerful in person! As the show of peonies fade, and bearded irises cut back, these new flush of blooms are taking over the garden. Feverfew with Rose Campions Visions of pink/purple blooms now change to a sea of yellow...primroses! Everywhere! Summer has officially begun!
Bizzy little worker... Next flower...
...with Coral Bells
This 'Arctic Queen' clematis bloom is huge!
First asiatic lily to bloom
After a night of torrential downpour, with thunder rocking the house, the sun is finally peeking out, but I am NOT heading out for yard work! Nuh-Uh! A trip to the airport at 4 am has put yours truly in serious need of a nap!
