Well, didn't get to work outside due to feeling sick. So, decided to do some cleaning indoors. Best laid plans sure didn't work out today. Then DH gets a call from his friend who's son is a police officer and says that a deer was hit and wants to know if he wants the deer. He of course says yes and he has been gone all day with his friend helping him to butcher and package it up.

Last night I live-headed all the daylilies, then this morning went out to get pics. Then I live-headed the daylilies this evening so I can take pics again tomorrow.

Weekends are the only chance I get to take really good pics. By the time I get home from work, they look very tired and have pollen all over them.

Did some watering today and really need to weed some more but new puppy thinks its a game and like to chew on mulch and walk between the big foliage. He is about 7 lbs. now so he can't do much harm except maybe on the shorter ones.
Moved Pandora's Treasure out of the big bed and into a part shade against the house. The 2 fans were puny and now it has 1 scape per fan coming on. Put some milorganite down and the puppy likes that too so i have to keep him out of it. Probably have to gate him in the kitchen to get any heavy digging done once the bloom season starts. He is a cute little guy (7 pound devil with an angel face) but next year will be better when he will be over a year old. Oh yeah he is white too. Garden dirt and white do not mix well. Every 2 weeks bath time and he hates to get wet but drys fast.

Hi, Vickie
I live headed last night too. It was going on nine when I came in but it was cooler to work late in the afternoon. I have family in from the Chicago area and they like to see my garden. I need to get out early and take some more pics. I took several yesterday morning and something is wrong with my SD card file Angry

Dumb question. When you live head do you cut or pinch the blooms and how far back do you pinch or cut?

I planted 15 new daylilies in pots and grow bags. Also did some watering and checked to see who had scapes. Quite a few of the new ones do! Hurray!

I strained my back, so for the past several days it has had to be very light stuff done in the garden, but today I did start building some raised beds out of treated lumber I had left over after we changed the dimensions of the back steps. I stained the insides so the chemicals used to preserve the wood would not affect the plants when they are put in. Only have one box made so far, have several more to make, but the back was feeling much better. Raining now so I will rest up a bit.

I did a few pollinations, took some notes and pictures, and did a little deadheading. The last few days were cooler than they usually are this time of year, and the nighttime temp was 53 degrees (also maybe a bit cooler than usual, though we always have cool nights). If nothing else, that helps to sort out which seedlings are worth another look. (Daylilies that can't handle our cool nights are a pet peeve of mine.) This seedling is fairly plain looking, but I like yellow (and diamond dusting Sticking tongue out )and you can't fault it for not opening! Thumbs up

So, Saturday, I only went to Menard's. I thought it best not to go to the other two places because I probably would have spent way more by stopping at all 3 places vs. one!! Rolling my eyes. I'm all ears! I already have "buyer's remorse" just from Menard's, for crying out loud!! D'Oh! D'Oh! Well, the potential for a larger hit to the wallet and checks bouncing from here to Egypt, was averted anyway!! Big Grin Thumbs up Angel

Yesterday was just simply gorgeous!!.....Hot, but with nice steady comfortable breezes! After dropping the DH off at work, I went to Home Depot to look at a few annuals and buy just one bag of mulch. I then spent nearly the entire day outside and got all my annual pots planted. I did plant 'Fred Manning', combined with deep red wave petunias, in my feature pots on either side of our porch steps. Just didn't want to spend a ton of money on annuals, nor did I want to spend a lot of time, either, but still, with all of the additional annual plantings, it took nearly all day! Blinking Blinking I just have a few "straggler" annuals to find homes for Rolling my eyes. and a metal planter to scrape and re-paint, that will hold a liner planted with Caladiums for the front porch. Smiling Smiling After I brought the DH home from work, he helped me move a larger pot from the back northeast tree garden to the border garden by the garage. Lovey dubby It's planted with Caladiums. The northeast garden will be incorporated in to one continuous mixed "living fence" garden along the east property line. So it's time to visualize that garden as a corner garden, rather than an independent garden, where yellow twig dogwoods will be the backdrop under the tree canopy. The large pot was situated within the spread of those future dogwoods. I put an even larger red pot in a spot further out from the corner (where a low birdbath was located), which will have a dwarf hydrangea planted in it. The low birdbath will move about 30 inches out further from it's original spot, as well. It will be a fun project, but a lot of hard work that has been, and will continue to be, moving at a "puttering pace", due to low energy and finances......well, also some resistance from the "Establishment"...ahem, the DH! Glare It will certainly continue this year, and it will be an exhausting battle of wills, no doubt! Blinking Whistling The "bones" of the east border garden are there, which were planted in 2012. There'll be some tweaking and the footprint is going to change from the original a little bit. Whistling Whistling This will be the largest area with full sun conditions, beyond the tree canopy, that I have in the yard. So, well, it will have lots of daylilies adorning it!! I'm all ears! Whistling Whistling

Today, not much got done bc I had an exhausting hearing in Akron, late this morning, and I needed to sleep, by the time I got back home! Blinking So the afternoon was slept off, but it would have been way too hot to work anyway! Glare This early evening, was spent spot watering and watering the annual pots, while thinking of all the unfinished work that needs done and how I have no energy to do it today! Blinking Glare

Tomorrow the plan is to get what's left to plant in the ground before it rains in the mid to late afternoon! Big Grin Big Grin

@Legalily, Ginny, I usually live-head by breaking the bloom backward. I have been known to have a few unopened blooms fall off when the live bloom snaps off, but that is rare. I also rarely live-head unless I know I will be taking pictures the next morning.

For some reason, this year when when I deadhead the next day, instead of breaking away, the bloom just bends and does not want to break off. Not sure if it is the weather, but we have gone 6 weeks with only two-tenths of an inch of rain.
