Hot and dry weather has set in here in the hills and that means dragging around the water hoses. Quite a difference from last year when we only had to water the gardens a few times. From the looks of it this may be one dry summer ahead.
In the woodland bed it is always a challenge each year to keep the deer from eating the lilies. I use garlic clips hanging along a string line around the bed and deer spray repellants. They still nip off a few even with these deterrents.
I have to admit that I love lilies so I have a few stuck around in all of my flower beds. Some bloom early and a few for later blooms.
Also in the woodland bed I have scattered many wild flower seeds. Many daisies and coneflowers are coming up there.
Also in bloom now in the Hippie or Orange Flower Bed ….
Eremurus ‘Sheford Yellow’ Foxtail lily. These were suppose to be a mix of pinks and yellows but I got all yellow it seems. They are suppose to fix this and send another mix with pink ones guaranteed among them. Foxtail lilies bloom from the bottom upwards.
Veronica ‘Lilac Fantasy’ grown from seeds that Catherine of “A Garden in Progress” sent to me. Thanks Catherine I love them!
So there is a lot going on in the flowerbeds right now.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend and…
