The daylily clump came out as its own little garden -- with this tall heirloom Rudbeckia 'Golden Glow' and a few pieces of the shorter black-eyed Susan attached.
I left it all together and plopped it in this area, which was bare because I have been killing out pink mallow for two years. I dug out all the little mallow plants I could find before planting it. I am sure there are still seeds waiting to come up again next year. I will deal with that when it happens. I chose this spot because it was there and because the deck railings will provide support for the tall 'Gloden Glow' which can get up to 7 feet or so.
Now what to fill that hole with? I bought a bee balm (Fireball) for 1/2 price yesterday.
The easiest thing to do would be to just stick that in. After a little more thought, I decided against that because there is too much sun in this area.
I walked a few feet behind the hole and dug up another daylily. A pink one that goes better with this pink garden area (which was never pink until this year).
From this angle, you can see the 'Golden Glow' flowers.
Around here if you see a Daddy Longlegs spider folklore says it's going to rain.
I think it is going to rain more today, which is wonderful.
I spent most of my day outside yesterday, but I did go in to do one dreaded chore -- scrub the floors--I hate dirty floors.
I also did another spur-of-the-moment task. I baked decorated sugar cookies for my sweet husband. He loves frosted sugar cookies. I rarely make them because they take forever and I can't decorate for diddly...now why did that expression just pop in to my head? LOL. I tried..........
I made royal icing and I made some stiffer to outline the cookie...
Let's hope they taste better than they look.
