New garden pics

So here’s my first attempt to integrate my garden and regular blog; not bad, if I say so myself. The newest pics’re up in the gallery: Take a peek!

The Stella d’Oro daylilies are going crazy. I came this close to ripping them all out last year: they produced hardly any blooms and they just looked so ordinary… but boy am I glad I waited. They’re just bursting with bright yellow trumpets, and they really pull the garden together in this three-week period where very little blooms (the spring flowers are finished and the summer flowers haven’t started; the roses are saving their strength, storing up for their next flush of flowers).

Our poor lawn needs some serious TLC. Personally, I’m all in favor of ripping it out and replacing it with creeping thyme or some other steppable groundcover.
