A Clem, not a Hem:
The Hemerocallis have been putting on their big spring show. By now some are a mess:
I just discovered the easiest way to pull off the flower stems: fold them down to the ground. Most of them break free with an audible snap.
There, all clean!
Old classic. I disremember the name. Old or not, a lovely color.
A recent introduction showing how day lily Hybridizers have turned a simple flower into something edged, textured, and ruffled. The most recent introductions go far beyond this one--some might say too far, to the point of grotesquerie.
As I clean the Hems, Dahlias bloom.
The Hummers perch on 'Hercules'.
The Trachelium decided to grow five feet tall. I didn't think they got that tall. It's growing up through 'Tamora' rose, but I focused only on the Trachelium.
Another precious day, more precious flowers.
