Hard to believe it has been nearly 6 months since I posted on Garden Guides. I do look it some but not like I used to.
In looking out in the back of my yard I saw that the Rose of Sharon is blooming but was covered by a renegade Mimosa sapling. Took my loppers and cut it back so I could see the beautiful rosy pink flowers.
Completed a pretty big task in cutting the landscape Azaleas back a week ago. They were so overgrown. As we have had many spring/summer like showers they are recovering and look wonderful. The plants had whitelflies and Azalea lace bug damage. I did spray an environmentally safe product on them and will need to do that a couple more times over the season. My goal is to have healthy looking plants come next spring.
Thought I had lost my gorgeous double white Clematis, but in the last few weeks it has sprouted from the root. It may be nicer and more beautiful than ever. I look forward to seeing how it blooms next spring. The pink one bloomed fair this year.
This pink daylily is blooming now and it is called Joylene Nichole and the next one is Alberts Blueberry purchased from Browns Ferry Daylily Gardens a few years ago.
There are many daylilies blooming now and I so enjoy them. Especially since they don't require that I keep the beds clean. I love forgiving plants. No matter if I can get out there and keep everything nice and tidy, they just give me great joy. Have fun digging and resting in your gardens.
