Well, those 2 new daylily's are beginning to open this morning but not wide enough to grab a photo. Even though we are under a warm spell in the East, our nights cool down to the 60's. We are expecting light rain showers this afternoon, and that is welcomed because its been so dry recently. We will be back in the 80's this weekend.
Here are some of the flowers still blooming this morning:
'Emerald Dream' An outstanding bloom with its green edge
'Keep on Keeping On' and 'Red Ragamuffin' blooming side by side.
'Ruffles Have Ripples'
and from my mountain deck overlooking the ski resort, some gorgeous 'Hibiscus' plants are in full bloom. I hope it's okay to post them here. They are just gorgeous.
Lost tag on this one...a gift from my 90 yr. old neighbor who has a 2nd home up here. Once a year we have lunch together at the Golf Course which is always fun. She is very in tune with all aspects of life. She looks 70 and acts like she is 50. Just an amazing gal! This gorgeous bloom is over 8" in diameter from the 'Von Trapp' Nursery here in our Valley, grandson of Maria, from the 'Sound of Music' fame.
Purchased 14 yrs ago from the 'Marie Selby Botanical Gardens' in Siesta Key, Fla.when I spent an entire Winter on the Island. A prolific double bloomer. Spends the Winter's in my house, and the Summer's on my outside deck.
and one more from the 'Selby Botanical Gardens'
7" eye-candy Hibiscus bloom.
I also found a large re-bloom scape on 'Journey of Magic' which was surprising to me as this plant has not been an easy one for me to grow. My feelings now are that some new plants really do take 3 yrs. to get acclimated in my New England garden.
