|Our newest lily. Rose lily. We ought it about a month ago, but with the drought we haven't planted it yet. Isn't the bloom beautiful! It is a double flower. They had advertised it at a local garden center and I had to have one!|
|I Love the color of this daylily. Red Shed Lavender. I might have posted it before.|
|Double Decker coneflower. The last two years it has done well. Before that we had to nurse it a long. One year it was eaten way down by the earwigs.|
|He's back! I finally have gotten a picture of the hummingbird moth! Hard to get as he never stops flying from plant to plant. I wish I could get him with his wings still. Fat chance on that! It doesn't work that way. But I am so glad to get this one!|
|The gold finches have been busy today eating the seeds off the flowers. We have a lot of them here. They are so pretty.|
|Of course chippy has to make himself known. Sounds like he is tap dancing in thsi pipe!|

|Enough rain on the roof to give the rain chain a work-out!|
|This little guy was getting very dry. Not sure if he is a frog or toad. I don't know if toads can climb. Never really thought of it. ut he was just hanging around.|
|Rain drops on the plaintain. I love the bluish stems on this plant.|
|Just because I love my daylilies. This is one of the most colorful out there right now. But with 50+ I would be hard pressed to say what my favorite is!|
