My Lilies are blooming and I'm enjoying the various colours. The self-sown Lavender sort of hides this corner! There are also some volunteer Nasturtiums in among the Lilies but I don't have the heart to pull them out.
Alyssum and Thyme growing in the front of the bed.
The Daylilies are also starting to open. This one is Apricot Sparkles.
And there is a row of Stella d'Oro.
Unfortunately some of my Daylilies have been infested with the Gall Midge that causes the buds to be misshapen and full of the 'eggs' for next year's infestation. I have to go around and cut off the affected buds, seal them in a plastic bag and put them in the garbage.
We had a bit of a shower last night, just enough to freshen things up a bit but not enough to give the plants a decent drink. The forecast for next week is for rain so we'll wait and see if it happens.
Now the sun is breaking through the clouds and it looks like the rest of the day will be fair.
Thanks for visiting, G.M.
