In June, Debbie Laity had a contest about showing our homes for the summer. I had really wanted to show off the results of all of the hard work Mary had put in on our gardens, but we had a really late spring and tons of rain, and nothing was really ready yet by the time the contest ended.
But it is now. One of the most spectacular plants Mary has worked with over the years are giant daylillies. They love it here and every year, she has to thin them out and spread them around. Now they're everywhere.
I particularly like these paired with our sage, another plant that has thrived and spread. They're both in full bloom now, and busy with hummingbirds and bees.
