White Oriental Roselily Corolla has been an amazing beauty this year .. I feel guilty for not keeping up with the neem oil spray to protect it even further. It has put on a beautiful show in the garden and I had to cut a stalk or two to bring into the house .. it is still going strong and gives off a unusual scent that Garden PA says smells like cinnamon .. I'm not sure myself but what ever the scent is the flowers shine.
Details with a filipendula flower caught my eye, especially with the little hoverfly.Delft Lace astilbe is coming into it's own now. It is a later season astilbe and is very pretty with its dark red stems through out the foliage. The soft pink flower blends in nicely with the other plants.
Little Lamb hydrangea is blooming out quickly. I have to watch for the right moment when it starts to go pink/rose so I can dry some flowers to look at this winter.
My gaggle of geese are so quick right now I almost have to start dead heading to keep the fresh flowers blooming. I don't know what it is but they make me laugh when I see them ..
I really think of beautiful plump white geese in a gaggle.
A little gaggle snuck into the back garden by the Ostrich ferns and giant grass.
That is tough competition to survive !
