NEW FLOWERS

The first good blossom from the strawberry candy day lily. At least the first good blossom that was still around when I was there to take a picture of it. Day lilies do live up to their names. Barely open in the morning, going by the time I get home from work.

And a really pretty pink rose from the side yard.

It also has a really pretty dark green foliage and light yellow highlights at the base of the blossom.

Looking towards the lavenders this morning. I found myself with a few extra minutes and sunshine. You can't really see them, but the purple coneflowers have been growing like crazy and setting blossoms. This one didn't do well at all last year. The now gone Spanish lavender was just too big and almost crowded the cone flower out of the picture. Tough little begger. There is a new yellow one and a magenta on that we're looking forward to seeing. As newbies they're running a little behind the older plant.

An ok shot of our yellow day lily. It's called Condilla. I don't know if you can see it, but the blossom on this one is shaped differently from the others. It has what looks like a double blossom. Very bright and very different.

NICE daylily.  I love the different colors they come in these days.

And the pink rose with the dark green foliage is a knock-out.  Lisa  :-]

I see why that flower is called "strawberry candy." It looks edible. --Cin
