We have just completed a wonderful week of “Camp Grammy” with our six year old granddaughter from California and a fun time with my extended family on the 4th of July. Two new babies (one month and four months old) in my cousins’ families were the stars of the day. Welcoming a new generation coming along in our extended family is indeed cause for celebration.
Another cause f0r celebration is the presence of flowers in bloom this week in the garden, just the right timing to fill this week’s vase. A bit of rain has helped, and I’m grateful that the rabbits must be eating elsewhere right now (maybe that smelly stuff I put around has been working).
Included in this week’s vase are two hydrangeas (‘Endless Summer’ and ‘Blushing Bride’), two garden phlox (an unidentified pink one that I have moved now into its third garden and Phlox paniculata ‘Violet Flame’), Becky daisies, and ‘Homestead Purple’ verbena.
I selected two blossoms of one of my favorite daylilies, ‘Daquiri.’ This has been its best blooming year in this garden, although it is almost finished for the season. I carefully chose two scapes with their last blooms; there are still a few more to come
I won’t bore you with yet another picture, but the calla lillies are still presentable in their vase after FOUR weeks!
