I have lost track of some of my day lilies .. this year has been so upside down with events it is lucky that I can focus or remember plants at all ! I think this is " Little Wine Cup" but I am not sure .. I love the way it plays off the blue gray hues in the background with the Blue Star juniper and that gorgeous soft gray blue artemisia
My Black Lace Sambucus isn't as black as I hoped it would be .. but perhaps a bit of pampering for next year with extra water ? it might grow up to be a little more spectacular ? My poor Harvest Moon Echinacea seems to be a little off as well .. I'm thinking maybe it was bad watering on my part .. or lack of watering on my part .. thinking the rainfall we had was enough ? Note to self .. MORE water !! In any case .. just a few snaps from the garden while I was dragging around the hose with water wand .. pretending to be a fairy sprinkling love and water on my plants ? Good Grief .. me a fairy ? .. more like madwoman gardener cursing the hose and trying to remember what is what ? and why did I do THAT ? in some rather scary areas of my jungle !
