Loving Zeus and Timaru right now. They're peaking, but in a minute or two they'll be done, and the OTs will take over. Also included is our furry garden ornament, who cannot take a bad picture.

Little closer view of the corner anchored by Zeus right now. The persicaria in front of it is too tall this year, because of all the rain I guess. I pinched it back all spring, but it grows an inch a minute.

Lovely, Laura. The greenish nicotiana looks fantastic with that white lily. I will have to remember that combo.

I do see a few, and the keyword is few, other plants in the first photo.

How do you keep track of your lilies Tracey? I see they are planted quite close together.

Just beautiful garden beds. I don't know how you can ever leave home this time of year.

One thing, planting close gives weeds less of a chance to take over. Second, even when I plant with distance, which I actually do sometimes too, they fill in with years of growth and some multiplication. In order to remember who is who, I have EON mini markers.

The first bed, the actual mixed bed I call Ramona's Inspiration, because she (Ramona, Faraway Flowers) inspired me to create it starting with daylilies, which I had a few of, and several more now, then I filled those daylilies in with lilies, coneflowers and tree peonies, primarily, though there are a few other odds and ends in there. The coneflowers are 'Firebird', 'Pink Poodle' and 'Tomato Soup'....I think, if I recall correctly. Just to stick up for myself, I will tell you that there are at least 20 varieties of daylilies in there, no kidding. Whistling

It seems like it would be allmost impossible to see the markers, that's why I was wondering. I have trouble keeping my irises marked, and they are so much shorter.

Not a mixed bed, but here's a plant from one. Japanese iris Victorian Trim.

Now that's gorgeous. What a nice blending of colors you have there Polly.

As far as the markers, I didn't want something that takes precedent over the plant itself, so I see it as something that I can refer to, but not overpowering the beauty itself.

'Arsenal', bad name, nice lily. It has a very unique form, almost reminding me of some sort of opened tulip.
