Garden Hostas Echinacea Daylily Lilies Morarda

It's hot enough out that I am watering the flowers today. Even got the grass mowed as they are saying rain for some days to come. Figured I would do a few photos while out there.

The left side of my yard half way down. Shows mostly some of my Hostas here.

Monarda Petite Wonder starting to bloom. This may be petite but it smells as wonderful as it's larger cousins.

Atleast the Peach Daylilies look peach today.

Stella de oro Daylily with Red Lillies on each side just starting to open. Love the combination of the colors together.

Echinacea are really opening up now with hundreds of buds interspersed in there as well as with the Daisies. Have a great weekend.

Such a cute little Monarda!

So sweet. I have a couple of buds on my Stella d'Oro, but am a few weeks away from them looking like yours. (Isn't it wonderful to see everything coming out on other people's blogs?)

That peach daylily is really lovely. I've never seen one like that.

I watered today as well. And just found out we may get rain tonight. Murphy's Law.

Thanks for your comment, Cher. My irises don't last very long either. But they are lovely when they are here. I think of all my perennials as old friends who visit just once a year. (Someone told me that once, and it has stuck with me.)

I forgot to mention that the hostas alongside your brick walkway remind me of the ones I have beside my own walkway. Hostas just such wonderful borders plants, don't they?

Oh, I love your peach daylilies. Peach is my favorite color, and I can't resist any flower in the shade of orange! Everything looks very nice. Enjoy the rain!

Love that little monarda. I had to pull out all of my standard one as it was about to take over the entire Eastern seaboard LOL, Your little one looks divine.

Hi Cher,
Your Hostas look great along your pathway. I did the same thing today, watered the garden. Calling for rain the last couple of days, but no rain yet...Have a great weekend!
All the Best,
Christine

I like the Monarda Petite Wonder. Reading about yours triggered a memory of planting that myself. But I have no idea what ever happened to it. Hmmmm...now I have to go search my blog to see if I did plant it a few years back!

Gorgeous texture and variegation with your hostas! My Echinaceas are just starting to bloom and I don't think I have ever seen so many buds. It has been a good year here for gardening.

You're just that bit ahead of me in Brittany. My day lilies are in tight bud, but just waiting for a bit more sunshine. I do like your blog!

I'm glad you're following Tracy at Gardening Obsession now. She has the most beautiful flowers...you'll love her photos. She was one of my first 'blogging friends.'

You really have a lovely garden!

Wow! What a beautiful garden! Those daylilies are gorgeous. Mine are still very young and just 2-3 fans large. I'm looking forward to see them blooming as much as yours do...
