I have not been out in the garden much since last week. I took these pictures of blooming phlox and daylilies a few days ago.
I have this phlox planted in a number of different areas. It's the one I used for the ice cream sundae bouquet.
I have a lot of these red daylilies. I like them since they bloom in an in-between stage of gardening--right after the first big flush of Asiatic lilies is over
I have not been deadheading my daylilies this year. It's a big chore, so I said to heck with it.
Next year I think I will go back to deadheading each day after work. I can't stand how messy daylilies look without deadheading. I need to either deadhead them or don't plant them. I am not doing them justice by allowing them to look like this.
Remember the gorgeous green coneflower and red rudebeckia I bought a few weeks ago from Home Depot? If you forgot, the following pics won't help you remember because they are only the decayed corpses of their original bodies.
Had I known there was no root system, I would have never bought these plants. This is the first year I have had a problem like this. I guess I need to take the advice I have read on the net and BEWARE OF HOME DEPOT PLANTS!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
