After fours days in the 90's we got a slight break today. Most of the time this past week was watering and more watering. The rain last night help somewhat but we need more. With the lack of attention due to the weather the garden has gotten a little unruly. Hopefully tomorrow I can tackle the weeds and do some edging, The daylilies are hitting their stride and bringing lots of color to the garden. I tend to favor the reds and oranges over the softer colors. Some of the species lilies are also starting to come into flower.
I am a garden designer and plant collector living in upstate New York with my wife Kathy. Last year we gave up a twenty year garden and moved to be close to our Grandson. We are starting a new adventure and new gardens. My specialty is shade plants.
