(An apology to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow...)
Listen my children and you shall hear,
of the mid-day bloom of daylilies dear!
'Twas the 30th of June, in late afternoon,
taking my photos - none too soon...
Unnamed - Apricot daylily from Dad and Mom
Unnamed - double peach
unnamed yellow/gold from Dad and Mom
― Michael Pollan, Second Nature: A Gardener's Education
unnamed yellow daylily - Sunny Corner Bed - front yard,
surrounded by Veronica Speedwell
“Gardening is akin to writing stories. No experience could have taught me more about grief or flowers, about achieving survival by going, your fingers in the ground, the limit of physical exhaustion.” ― Eudora Welty

larger double daylily in center pond garden - backyard. Lovely!
next to driveway and front of house... a little "flower collage" :-)
“It didn’t occur to me that… that gardening, like music, could demand practice, patience, a willingness to make mistakes.”
― Amy Stewert
You can perhaps tell I haven't been home in a few days... and that I truly need to be deadheading tomorrow morning (something to which I look forward!!!). That being said, the mosquitoes are quite prevalent and hardy this year... so I will be "suiting up!"
Happy end-of-June gardening! SG
