This unnamed lily was given to Dave by a friend of ours who owns a greenhouse. The lily was done blooming when it was given to Dave who was ten years old at the time; now he's twenty and the lily is still going strong. We call it, surprise, surprise--- 'Dave's Lily'. Joel has some great time lapse footage of the flowers opening, just click on the arrow to play...
False spirea 'Sorbaria sorbifolia'-I love the dark foliage and the white blooms
The north side of the quarry hill is filling in nicely
I spent the day deadheading hostas and all the other flowers in need. Ann came tonight and did some more mulching in spots that needed it. I painted the lawn furniture we bought last week to cover up the rust and we need to find the best place in the yard for the settee, two chairs and a small table.
Kind of hard to see(and smell!) from this photo, but the lilies are towering over the gardens and their fragrance is a constant delight!
Time for bed again...we have a garden group coming on Wednesday so I need to get up early, spray for bugs, and tidy up a bit again. With all the rain, comes 'all' the weeds!
